Didelphodon ("Opossum tooth") was a small, Late Cretaceous, North American marsupial mammal from the Late Cretaceous Period. This primitive, badger-sized mammal had to live in the world that was dominated by the dinosaurs. Although the size is small it is the largest mammal in the Mesozoic Era.



Didelphodon lived in the Late Cretaceous period over 65 million years ago.They gave the direct rise of Mammals. We, Mammals Dominated the Permian period, cling on to saftey in the Mesozoic Era, and dominated during the Cenozoic Era.


A little Cretaceous mammal that was a scavenger, these animals were marsupials and specialized in raiding abandoned dinosaur nests. They were about the size of a cat, measuring a meter long.
