Dimetrodon (D. grandis, "Wedgetooth"), is an extinct genus of non-mammalian synapsids that lived during the Kungurian Age of the Lower Permian, between 295 and 272 million years ago, was a terrestrial animal and is believed to have lived in swampy areas and river banks, near bodies of fresh water where they could find food.

It is a member of the Sphenacodontidae family and is the best known of the Pelicosaurs, especially for its spectacular sail.
It preceded the Dinosaurs by about 50 MY 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 it is not known with certainty how they interacted with each other.

D. grandis could measure 3 - 4 meters long and weigh 250 kg. And it is suggested that it could have practiced cannibalism since remains of babies have been found in the wombs of adult specimens.

Its natural habitat was the supercontinent Pangea, which was composed of a large land mass 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.

Approximate measurements of Dimetrodon:
  • Scale 1:35 - 90mm
  • Scale 1:24 - 125 mm
