Abstract

The stable carbon and oxygen isotopic ratios present in dentine and tooth enamel from one Mixotoxodon larensis specimen from Hihuitlán, Michoacán, México, were analyzed. Similar to other specimens in Honduras and Panama, δ13C and δ18O values showed that this individual had a mixed diet and lived in a forested zone.
