Professor Steve Brusatte has followed his bestselling The Rise and Fall of the Dinosaurs with something even more fascinating and surprising. His new book, The Rise and Reign of the Mammals: From the Shadow of the Dinosaurs to Us, brims with extraordinary images of extraordinary animals from the long past: whales with legs that could move on land or paddle in water, armadillos the size of cars and a horse-gorilla hybrid that walked on its knuckles and pulled down the branches of trees with its claws. These are not monsters from the imagination of Pieter Bruegel or Salvador Dali but the ancestors of the six hundred species of mammals on Earth today – and of us.
