- Inside a starship, watching puny humans from afar
Global cooling. Small dinosaurs couldn't withstand the cold. They weren't able to make their own heat like the big dinos."The changed environmental conditions meant the bigger animals (dinos) died out before the smaller ones (mammals)"
But even the tiniest (chicken sized) dinosaurs disappeared, whereas the larger (badger sized) mammals survived.
Still a lot of mystery surrounding the extinction event.
Mammals were able to survive, being warm-blooded.
