"Multituberculata is an extinct group of primitive mammals that was extremely diverse during the Cretaceous, but slowly became extinct around 35 million years ago. The groundhog-sized multituberculate Meniscoesssus robustus (Robust Small-Crescent Tooth) is a frequent sight on the forest floor under cover of darkness, where it can be found nibbling on plant matter."

Saurian: A Field Guide to Hell Creek

Meniscoessus was a genus of extinct mammal from the Cretaceous Period of North America. It lived toward the end of the "age of the dinosaurs" and was a member of the extinct order Multituberculata. It will appear in Saurian.[1]


It was a small mammal. As an endotherm, it needed to eat on a regular basis to produce the energy needed to regulate its body. It was a omnivore, mostly eating plant material but occasionally fed on small animals, like insects or even lizards and dinosaur eggs. Being a small animal in a time of large dinosaurs, it was prey for theropods like young Tyrannosaurus, young Dakotaraptor, Acheroraptor, Anzu, and Pectinodon, reptiles like Borealosuchus, and Palaeosaniwa, and the pterosaur Quetzalcoatlus.

In SaurianEdit

Meniscoessus is expected to appear in Saurian as an AI. It is portrayed looking very similar to the carnivorous marsupial, the quoll (despite not being that related), having a dark brown pelt and a sparse scattering of white spots along with a bright pink nose.
