Lost Mammal Found

The red-crested tree rat was first discovered over a century ago, then never seen until earlier this month.  Yay!

Is it just me, or does this really really look like the thing that ate the dinosaurs?  You look in dinosaur books, especially older ones, and there's usually this little mammal in the pictures right before the dinosaurs roll over and die.
