DINO-A-DAY #85: Dimetrodon

Welcome to Dino-a-Day, where we'll be highlighting one prehistoric beast per day until the release of our graphic novel Evolution: The Story of Life on Earth on January 4, 2011.

Each of the ninety-six creatures we'll be featuring on this blog are taken from a huge 2-page spread in the middle of Evolution. So while you can see each individual creature here, you'll need to grab the book to see them all together!



NAME: Dimetrodon
PRONUNCIATION: dī-mět'rə-dŏn'
FAMILY: Sphenacodontidae
EXISTED DURING: Permian
DISCOVERED: North America, 1878
FUN FACT: I was crushed to discover that my favorite dinosaur is not a dinosaur at all! By definition dinosaurs are terrestrial animals that are either bipedal or quadrupedal, with straight legs underneath their bodies. Dimetrodon, although awesome-looking, does not fit that definition due to its low, bent-legged stance.
