Although Scrat was a fictional species, fossils of a mammal similar to Scrat were found in the Rio Negro region in Argentina in 2011. It was not a squirrel at all. In fact, it was closely related to Dryolestoids. It was one of the earliest known mammals ever to exist. Mammals actually lived after the dinosaurs went extinct. It lived from the Late Cretaceous to 960,000 years ago.
