Cynodonts



Scientific Classification
  Kingdom Animalia
  Phylum Chordata
  Class Synapsida
  Order Therapsida
  (unranked) Theriodontia
  Suborder Cynodontia
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".

Cynodonts Timeline:



Cynodonts were mammal-like reptiles that lived between 250 and 100 million years ago, and were probably the ancestors of all modern mammals
