Gnawing animals



Does anyone know how extensive the multituberculate population was during the
Mesozoic?  I know that multi's held the rodent niche during this time, but is
there any idea on how big an influence they had in their environment?
Ultimately, is it possible that dino bones would have had a better chance of
being fossilized than mammal bones today, because the number of animals that
would gnaw on the bones may have been smaller during the Mesozoic?
