Wasn't there a large asteroid that ended their dominance when humans weren't around? There hasn't been an earth ending asteroid event since humans came about.  Don't worry though, we are doing our best to end our species.

This is why most other planets are dominated by rock people or lizard people.

The meteorite threw up so much debris that, when it re-entered the atmosphere over the next few days, the entire surface of the planet was scorched with 500F heat. The only life that could survive was underground or under water. I saw where only about 1 foot of soil would protect a critter during the bombardment. There are still many species of birds that nest in burrows, so some birds had probably developed that behavior prior to the extinction event and thus their ancestors survived as well as the mammals.
