The Ancient Relatives of Mammals

- ... For example, synapsids had two occipital condyles (which are bony knobs forming a joint between the head and neck). Synapsids have always traditionally been classified as reptiles for theoretical reasons because, the standard accounts of the history of life say that both mammals evolved from synapsids, and that mammals evolved from reptiles. If both of these claims are true, then synapsids have to be classified as reptiles. But is this assumption correct. It may not be so, as the earliest known synapsid fossils are actually the same age as the earliest known reptile fossils....   [tags: synapsids, moschops, mesozoic era ]
