New Mammal Fossil

A new mammal fossil was found in China that has astounded the paleontology community. It is larger than previous fossils, about the size of a large possum. The amazing thing though, is that it was found with the bones of a baby dinosaur in its stomach. Scientists previously believed that mammals did not hunt dinosaurs during this period, mostly because all mammals were believed to be rat sized and therefore would be unable to hunt dinosaurs. It is big news. It would increase the place mammals were on the evolutionary scale during the Cretaceous period.
