The term 'ruminant' is not synonymous with Ruminantia.. The suborder Ruminantia includes six different families: Tragulidae, Giraffidae, Antilocapridae, Moschidae, Cervidae, and Bovidae. Description Classification and taxonomy. Hofmann and Stewart divided ruminants into three major categories based on their feed type and feeding habits: concentrate selectors, intermediate types, and grass.

Giraffes are also related to the Cervidae family regarding their skin. Also, the members of the family Antilocapridae (of which the pronghorn currently survive) are said to be closely related to the Giraffoidea superfamily. Animals that we see so different today had an evolutionary past fascinating more related to each other than we believe. The controversy over their species and subspecies.
