Brasilodon, Just Eight Inches Long

Brasilodon

2022 Anatomical Society/Wiley

Quite a feat skittering at the feet of dinosaurs,
shrew-like mammal
fleet;
first wronged as reptilian,
but diphyodontly
mammalian,

a distinction.

Mammalian lore:
scattering eggs/
feeding on dregs—

triumphant !
short the Permian/Triassic extinction.
