Brasilitherium ("Brazilian beast") is a genus of cynodont that lived during the Late Triassic in what is now Brazil. Its length was approximately 12 cm and it weighed 20 grams. It fed on insects, making it an insectivore. Brasilitherium was found in Paleorrota (Caturrita Formation), a geopark located in Brazil. [1] [2]
