    Yeah, I saw this. I had no idea large mammals stood cheek-by-jowl with dinosaurs.

    Sortta blows apart the whole 'tiny shrew-like critter' image.

    Yes, sort of.

    Nobody is saying this was a mammal, though. It was a therapsid, an ancestor of the mammals.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Therapsid

    The significant thing, which I had not appreciated, is that therapsids were already a lineage distinct from the dinosaur - bird lineage, right back in the Permian.

    By the way, sculptor's picture bears an uncanny resemblance to one of those old man characters in the Muppets, don't you think?

    I see he's a pacer. Do they have tracks?
