Djadochtatheriidae is a family of fossil mammals within the extinct order Multituberculata. Remains are known from the Upper Cretaceous of Central Asia. These animals lived during the Mesozoic, also known as the "age of the dinosaurs." This family is part of the suborder of Cimolodonta. The taxon Djadochtatheriidae was named by Kielan-Jaworowska Z. and Hurum J.H. in 1997.
Multituberculates have traditionally been depicted as herbivores. This is too simplistic however, and they’re increasingly termed both herbivores and omnivores. The Kryptobaatar, for example, ate small Mesozoic lizards.
