Dimetrodon, (D. grandis, `Wedge-toothed´), is an extinct genus of non-mammalian synapsids that lived during the Lower Permian Kungurian Age, between 295 and 272 million years ago, was a terrestrial animal and is believed to have inhabited in swampy areas and riverbanks, near bodies of fresh water where it could find food. It is a member of the Sphenacodontidae family and is the best known of the Pelycosaurs, especially for its spectacular sail.
It preceded the Dinosaurs by about 50 MA and belonged to a totally different reptilian lineage.
It was the largest and most ferocious predator of its time and fed mainly on fish, amphibians, and reptiles. It was a solitary and territorial animal, and is believed to have had a rudimentary social structure, although how they interacted with each other is not known for certain.
D. grandis could reach 3 - 4 meters in length and weigh 250 kg. And it is suggested that he could have practiced cannibalism since the remains of babies have been found in the womb of adult specimens.
Its natural habitat was the supercontinent Pangea, which was made up of a large landmass that encompassed most of today's continents. The specific geographic location of Dimetrodon varied depending on the species, but some of them are known to have lived in what is now North America, Europe, Asia, and Africa.
The Model Pose represents an adult Dimetrodon specimen defending its territory from a high position.
