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 reptiles that were 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, strong legs that allowed it to move with stability on land. Its skull was large and wide, with a peculiar box-shaped structure at the back. 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.

Estemmenosuchus mirabilis was a herbivore, and its dentition was adapted to crushing plant material. It is believed that it fed on ferns and other types of primitive plants that were common in its environment during the Permian.
