Description

The rare fossils of Thrinaxodon liorhinus, extinct genus of advanced mammal-like reptiles, have played a central role in understanding both early mammalian evolution and the theory of plate tectonics. Thrinaxodon lived during the early Triassic (240-245 million years ago) and was roughly the size of a house cat.
