As promised in our episodes "Extreme Mammals Part I and Part II," I present to you a visual guide to our favorite warm-blooded prehistoric creatures. Julie and I selected these ten (as well as special superstar alternate) based on sheer anatomical awesomeness. So listen to the episodes, check out the images and feel free to share your own favorites with us. Oh, and the monster in the image is Arctocyon, who didn't make the list but is awesome anyway.
