Dimetrodon by Erikku8 Dimetrodon by Erikku8
A Permian period synapsid that lived in what is now Oklahoma some 290 million years ago; before any dinosaur arrived on the scene. A lot of folks mistake this strange beastie for a dinosaur, but it's actually more closely related to mammals than to any dinosaur. As for the art, I decided on the "classic" look; I'm aware that some people think dimetrodon may have had a more mammalian visage than what's pictured here, but since it's all speculation... I also know my proportions are off, but oh well.

Not exactly. I'm not an expert on evolution theory, but based on what I researched (and by "researched," I mostly mean I watched Trey the Explainer and PBS Eons), primates came from another line.
