The Adalatherium hui, "This 'crazy beast' was a weird early mammal that lived among dinosaurs...

Researchers have uncovered the fossil of an early mammal named the "crazy beast" that lived 66 million years ago alongside dinosaurs and giant crocodiles on Madagascar, and it's unlike any mammal ever known, living or extinct...

This mammal, about the size of an opossum, had a mix of strange characteristics that haven't been seen together before."



Looks like a Honey Badger to me.

The description in the article definitely presents some unusual traits.

On the other hand "we" have some pretty crazy mammals on planet earth, so it shouldn't (IMO) be all that surprising that ancient mammals had some unique characteristics.

Just saying...
