  *Tripriodon* as a genus is a mammal, and from what I can gather, considered a 
synonym of *Meniscoessus*. The anterior premolars are narrow, low-crowned, and 
blade like with very "coarse" denticulations that look like reptilian serrae. 
*T. caperatus* is not, to my knowledge, currently considered a dinosaur, and if 
I had my old hd available, I could check my notes on it.

  That's all I got, for now.
