Dear all,

for a talk I need a picture of a cretaceous mammal, preferredly

Ghost hunters: On the trail of a 'living fossil'
We are on our way to see if we can track down one of the most strange and ancient mammals in the world - the Hispaniolan solenodon.
The nocturnal solenodon, which is only found in the Dominican Republic and in one of the last forested patches of Haiti, is often described as a "living fossil", thanks to the fact that it has been around, virtually unchanged, for the past 76 million years.

Useful, I suppose, if you can believe that dating.
