The pig-footed bandicoot (Chaeropus ecaudatus) was last seen alive in the 1950s, but it still causes problems for orthodox Darwinian thinking.
Its features were more or less bizarre: it looked like a rat but had a pig’s fore feet and a horse’s hind feet. And it was a grazing marsupial.
Weighing 200 grams, and with a body length of 23–26 cm and a 10–15 cm long tail it was the smallest grazing mammal known to science. Using three fossil teeth, a new paper attempts to trace its ancestry to an omnivorous animal that lived “2 million years” ago.
However, evolutionists don’t usually think that creatures change their diets so quickly.
