(image source: https://ideas.fandom.com/wiki/Thrinaxodon_(SciiFii))
Host Matthew Donald and guest co-host Ben O’Regan discuss Thrinaxodon, a stem mammal that did not have little pitchforks or sea-ruling weapons in their mouths, so they’re very inaccurately named. I question these so-called scientists sometimes. From the Early Triassic, this 3-foot cynodont was one of the survivors of the Great Dying, AKA the Permian Extinction, AKA the worst time to be on Earth in all of its history other than last week at your aunt’s mandatory dinner party. Not sure which won out in the bad-o-meter. It’s a tossup I reckon.
