It was not known if Inostrancevia either laid eggs, or gave birth to live young like mammals do today. They don't even know if Inostrancevia and the rest of its family members had fur, or they were fur-less like other reptiles.

However, their reign would soon end when the worst mass extinction began at the end of the Permian Period, when over 90% of all life died out. Although a few mammal-like reptiles survived (Dicynodonts, Cynodonts, and Therocephalians) and ruled the early Triassic, Inostrancevia and its family members didn't survive the extinction due to most of its prey being extinct. However, with Inostrancevia and its family members gone, they left the gap for many animals to fill it. The only way you can see Instrancevia is the bones they left behind in the fossil record.
