Tiger was my childhood hero, a true warrior.
In 1962, Dick Tiger won the world middle weight boxing championship.
From the Permian extinction’s devastation arose a reptilian sheep called . Fossil hunters of early Triassic sediments have been frustrated for many years, as nearly are , because it was about the Permian extinction’s only land animal survivor. There has been about why it survived when almost nothing else did. No single animal ever dominated Earth’s land masses as thoroughly as did during the early Triassic. was probably a burrower (many have likened to a pig because of that burrowing), which may have provided the shelter needed to survive the Permian holocaust. It may also have been a and could eat most surviving plants. But some think that its survival, when almost every other species died, was due to luck. Luck is a surprisingly common proposed explanation for evolutionary events and outcomes, and some creatures seemed to be in the right place at the right time while others were in the wrong place at the wrong time. The spread of was also aided by two other facts: the land masses , so could simply walk to dominance of Earth; and few predators capable of eating a survived. One (being semi-aquatic may have also helped species survive the Permian extinction), as did , but not much else did. was a , as were the dominant land animals before the Permian extinction.
Tiger inspired lots of Nigerians to go into boxing.
The Golden Age of before it was displaced by , and diapsids, particularly , began displacing therapsids early in the Triassic. A descendant, , burrowed and was possibly a direct ancestor of mammals. If it was not our direct ancestor, it was a to it. Proto-mammals were displaced and largely driven underground during the Triassic, and many of them About 225 mya, which was about halfway through the Triassic, , although there is plenty of fierce controversy over exactly which animal could be called a mammal. But reptiles starred in the Mesozoic’s tale, dinosaurs in particular. Mammals were small, marginal creatures, and until the late Mesozoic, they only emerged from their burrows at night to feed.
