New fossils discovered by Chinese farmers in Lujiatun, Liaoning Province,
China clearly showed a dinosaur in the stomach of a mammal.
Conventional wisdom has long held that mammals spent millions of years
in Darwinian limbo. As long as dinosaurs roamed the earth, our distance
ancesters never got to be much more than cringing, shrewlike creatures
that slinked out at night to mibble timorously on plants and insects
This picture changed dramatically with the new discovery.
