During the Age of Dinosaurs, most mammals were not much bigger than small rodents. It was after the extinction of the large dinosaurs that the great diversity of mammals arose. 

Join us for a pre-recorded silent tour of the Hall of Primitive Mammals, featuring fan favorites like the armored Glyptodont and the giant ground sloth Lestodon. Tour guide Christian Waters will be sharing fun facts live in the comments section!
