A 4-inch-long (10 cm) track belonging to the raccoon-size mammal is the largest mammal print from the Cretaceous on record. Its size is surprising, given that most dinosaur-age mammals were the size of squirrels or prairie dogs, the researchers said.
It’s only surprising because none have been found before, not because they are impossible. Atmospheric conditions during that time led to large animals.
Best size for egg eating mammals competing with each other during the seasonal egg eating contests. No kid.
