Default Study Confirms Endangered Mammal Existence Before Dinosaurs' Extinction

Study Confirms Endangered Mammal Existence Before Dinosaurs' Extinction


A study confirmed that Hispaniolan solenodon, a venomous mammal has separated from all other living mammals 78 million years ago, long before an asteroid wiped all dinosaurs out.

Researchers from University of Illinois and University of Puerto Rico have finished sequencing the mitochondrial genome for the strange mammal that filled in the last major branch of placental mammals on the tree of life. Science Daily reported that researchers were able to catch the solenodon by allowing it to walk around at night in the forests of the Dominican Republic.
