Estemmenosuchus mirabilis
Estemmenosuchus mirabilis was an extinct species that lived during the Permian period, approximately 270 million years ago. It was a therapsid, a group of reptile predecessors of mammals, and was characterized by its unique and distinctive appearance, it could measure about 3 meters.

This animal had a robust and compact body, with short and strong legs that allowed it to move with stability on land. Its skull was large and broad, with a peculiar box-like structure at the rear. This cranial feature is one of the most notable of Estemmenosuchus mirabilis, and it is believed that it could have had multiple functions, such as thermal regulation or visual display for intraspecific communication.
