Chalicotheres?

The three claws are pretty rare among mammals.

These critters roamed Europe as recently as 4.5 million years ago. Which means they shared The Earth with some of our earliest ancestors.

Dino to a Pliocene Fred Flinstone.

He is our distant ancestor.
He lived at the end of the Triassic and the beginning of the Jurassic, about 200 million years ago. It has typical characteristics of mammalian reptiles (cynodonts), as well as mammalian characteristics. Scientists believe that Megazostrodon is a transitional form between cynodonts and mammals. Its survival during the extinction of the Triassic-Jurassic allowed the diversification of mammals and thus the appearance of Man.
For a long time Purgatorius was considered the star of our oldest ancestor but it seems to not be the case anymore.

of 10 is this the same beast?, Not sure by the picture.
Andrewsarchus

Andrewsarchus


Dmitri Bogdanov

Measuring 13 feet from snout to tail and weighing at least half a ton, Andrewsarchus was the largest terrestrial meat-eating mammal that ever lived; its skull alone was two and a half feet long and studded with numerous sharp teeth. Oddly enough, though, this Eocene predator wasn't ancestral to modern predators such as wolves, tigers, or hyenas, but belonged to the same general family (artiodactyls, or odd-toed ungulates) as camels, pigs, and antelopes. What did Andrewsarchus eat? Scientists aren't certain, but likely candidates include giant turtles and "thunder beasts" like Brontotherium.

No, it lived Early Paleocene–Late Paleocene 61.3-56.8 Ma ;)
