Cynodonts were a group of animals that lived during the late Permian period,
though to the mid Cretaceous period,
perhaps from about 250 million to 100 million years ago.
Cynodonts had many mammal-like features. They had differentiated teeth, mammal-like skulls,
a large braincase,
a secondary palate, and were probably warm-blooded and covered in hair. It is thought however that
they did laid eggs, just like other Mesozoic Era proto-mammals. Today, it is widely believed
that all modern mammals are descended from a Cynodonts.
The name "Cynodont" was coined by
Sir Richard Owen in 1861,
and means "dog teeth".
