Repenomamus

Today’s Prehistoric Beast is the Repenomamus, which was the largest known Mesozoic mammal to date. This creature has disputed how paleontologists possibly view the role of mammals during the Cretaceous Period as not that of meek mouse sized prey that scurried through the shadows of the underbrush attempting to elude the hungry eyes of larger saurian predators, but that of a voracious 3 and a half foot badger-like dinosaur hunter. This mammal has even been found with the fossilized remains of young dinosaurs in its stomach cavity to prove it.
