5 Killer Prehistoric Mammals You’d Never Domesticate

Many of today’s domesticated mammals are cute and cuddly, especially when they’re young. But what about their ancestors? Now that’s a very different story.

Tens of millions of years ago, it was literally dog-eat-dog—nearly everything was ferocious—so animals had to be tough and ferocious just to to survive.

These were definitely critters you would not want to encounter, for you’d only last a few seconds around most of them.

Check out some of these beasts in the video, such as the ‘terminator’ pigs and fanged squirrels.

And this is only a handful of the ferocious mammals, not to mention dinosaurs, that were around back then—it definitely wasn’t a very people-friendly environment.

Having had many eclectic experiences and expressing interest in so many varied things in life has suited my role as Editor-in-Chief of Vision Times. Being trained in the sciences, I worked in the medical field. Scuba diving was a passion, being part owner of a scuba shop, and I enjoyed diving around the world. Raising reptiles of all sorts, including poisonous snakes, was also one of my hobbies when living in the U.S. After moving to Australia in the 80s, I became an avid organic grower of tropical fruits and vegetables, which my wife and I partake of year-round, as well as many of our friends. My newest endeavor has been to become a “bikie” — an eBikie, which I do every day not only to get exercise, but also to have a break from slaving over my computer most of the day. Obviously, China is also a passion, which is something VT specializes in, so I feel very fortunate to have a role here at Vision Times.
