Not a Dinosaur, a Reptile, featured in the first episode of "Walking With Dinosaurs" Rosell is correct it's a dicynodont

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

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.

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