Description

Throughout the Cenozoic Era -- the era were in now -- marsupials and their metatherian relatives flourished all over South America, filling all kinds of ecological niches and radiating into forms that still thrive on other continents.

Thanks to Darin Croft and Velizar Simeonovski for allowing us to use illustrations that can be found in the book Horned Armadillos and Rafting Monkeys: The Fascinating Fossil Mammals of South America. http://www.iupress.indiana.edu/product_info.php?products_id=808164 .

You can also find more of Darin Croft's work at https://raftingmonkey.com/

And thanks as always to Ceri Thomas for the excellent metatherian illustrations! https://alphynix.tumblr.com/
