Did unicorns live at the time of the dinosaurs?

Unicorns lived at the time of the dinosaurs but they were tiny. Because they are magic, they started before the other mammals started.

This fossil is a picture of an early unicorn. The photo has been enlarged so that you can see it better.

Unicorns started to change with the changing of the horses. That is called evolution. The early horses were called eohippus. Eohippus lived about 52 million years ago and were as tiny as a fox. By then unicorns had already grown a lot.

    Dear Midnight Lightning,
    this is so interesting. Were dinosaurs also unicorn friends?
    52 million years is such a long time ago. Can you tell us something about unicorns in more recent history? For example, do you know anything about unicorns in the Middle Ages?
    Thank you,
    Ingrid
