A Skull Found In Madagascar Solves A Longstanding Mystery About Evolution

    It belongs to a primitive mammal that lived on the supercontinent Gondwana millions of years ago.

    A fossil skull has provided scientists with new insight into a group of creatures that were previously only known through their fossilised teeth.

    The fossil shows that the mammal probably had big eyes, good hearing, and a keen sense of smell.

    It roamed the supercontinent of Gondwanda around the same time as dinosaurs, like this one.
