The origin of mammals is characterized by a shift from a primitive pattern of multiple, alternating replacements of all postcanines in most cynodonts to a derived pattern of single, sequential replacement of postcanines. The stem mammal Sinoconodon, however, retained some primitive… CONTINUE READING
