Life after the dinosaurs. Computer artwork showing small mammals next to the skeleton of a Triceratops sp. dinosaur during the Palaeocene (around 65 million years ago), after the mass extinction of the dinosaurs. The ring-tailed animals are Chriacus sp., and the rat-like animals are Ptilodus sp. . The mass extinction of all non-avian dinosaurs (around 65 million years ago) left no large animals on the Earth and created room for the adaptation and evolution of new species.
