There is only one skeleton in the world of the ferocious furball that lived with T. rex. – and you’re looking at it. Known technically as Didelphodon, this marsupial mammal has been misinterpreted by paleontologists for a century. Textbooks say that it was merely a big opossum, but out new skeleton proves that Didelphodon had the face of Tasmanian devil combined with the body and tail of a river otter. Pound for pound, the Tazzie was the most powerful creature of Cretaceous rivers and lakes – the terror of clams, snails, and baby alligators.
