Canoidea (superorder Ferae, order Carnivora) A superfamily that comprises dogs (Canidae), bears (Ursidae), raccoons (Procyonidae), weasels (Mustelidae) and probably the pinniped families. These are relatively unspecialized carnivores whose evolution shows tendencies to move from a carnivorous diet to one containing increasing amounts of plant material, and eventually (e.g. some bears, and pandas) to a fully herbivorous diet.
