looks like an old, sad guy

Why is that creature looks so sad?

Since this is a perfectly well known animal, what's the point of its appearing here?

No. The largest known land animals were sauropod dinosaurs. Mammal-like reptiles were relatively small, although many were big enough to do you in if you poked 'em with a stick.

wasnt this one of the largest, or even the largest, animal to walk on land or something?

the animals dino_nut speaks of are actually not reptiles.. they're nether reptile nor mammal. such as the dimetrodon. looks like a huge sail-backed lizard.. but it wasn't a reptile at all.

Yes, it's a dicynodont. Examples include Lystrosaurus and Placerias.

Yup, this guy is probably more closely related to us then to the dinosaurs. it is from a group of reptiles that mammals evolved from. Interestngly, theese particular guys did really well after something knocked out most other life on the planet, and ruled almost without any competion for about 10 million years.

Nice pic, I love the creature, and plus, it said it lived before the dinosaurs, so it can't be a dinosaur.

Not a Dinosaur, a Reptile, featured in the first episode of "Walking With Dinosaurs" Rosell is correct it's a dicynodont
Comment icon #5 Posted by alienplayalolz on 3 April, 2005, 9:47

Comment icon #3 Posted by jacques terreur on 22 March, 2005, 4:54
