The End Of Mammals

About 65 million years ago something, most likely a large asteroid impact, wiped out the dinosaurs along with approximately 75% of the plant and animal species on Earth at the time. This brought an end to the Age of Reptiles and ushered in the terrestrial dominance of mammals.

…Or so we warm-blooded fools have always believed.
