no.  Something related but different survive the K/T boundary.  Much like chickens are related velociraptors.

Based on the headline some hypothesized and has preliminary evidence for snakes evolving after the K/T boundary that turned into snakes.

This was a few million years before the K/T., but it was a mass extinction. The idea being it snuffed out a farkton of species and that lead to an explosion of new species to fill niches.


But yeah, this was far before the dinosaurs.
