Not sure about any specific mammal, but god damn I love them whales. Greater story about life returning to the sea have never been told.

Sounds like you've never had the pleasure of eating a massive succulent, sweet and rich steak of giant armadillo for dinner.

if they tamed them they could be domesticated and would still be around to eat today
Also technically they are not armadillos but glyptodons
This species was weaponized. Imagine ancient Americans encountering these fuckers for the first time.

Cygnus falconeri, the Giant Swan, was a very large Siculo-Maltese swan known from the Middle Pleistocene. Its dimensions are described as exceeding those of the living Mute Swan by one-third, which would give a bill-to-tail length of about 190–210 cm (6.2 to 6.9 feet). A weight estimation has it at 16 kg (35 pounds). It would have been taller, though not heavier, than the region's dwarf elephants. Due to its size, it may have been flightless, or semi-flightless despite a 3 meter (9.8 foot) wing span. It was well adapted for walking, and apparently a land feeder. It became extinct before the increase in human activity in the region, so its disappearance is thought to have resulted from extreme climate fluctuations. Related to the climate fluctuations would have been a temporary land-bridge to Italy that allowed European competitors on to the Island.

Shoulda just named it Crocomammal.

Makes you wonder why they lost their back legs though. You'd think they'd use them for claspers at least...

Caseids were large herbivorous synapsids that lived through the early Permian, charismatic for their huge bulking bodies and puny heads.

Thylacoleo carnifex. That dropbear meme that Aussies try to fool backpackers with? Well this thing was essentially one. Semi-opposable thumbs, probably arborial, too squat to go fast.
