What kind of animal is Lemurosaurus?

Lemurosaurus was a prehistoric animal that lived in South Africa about 260 million years ago.
It was not a dinosaur, but a therapsid, a group of mammal-like reptiles that were the ancestors of mammals.
Lemurosaurus had a distinctive skull with large eyes and prominent eye crests that gave it a demonic appearance.
The name Lemurosaurus means "ghost lizard" in Latin and Greek.
Lemurosaurus belonged to a subgroup of therapsids called biarmosuchians, which were among the earliest and most primitive therapsids.
Lemurosaurus was probably a carnivore that hunted smaller animals with its sharp teeth and strong jaws.
Only two skulls of Lemurosaurus have been found, so its body size and shape are unknown.
The skulls are also damaged and weathered, making it hard to study their details.
Lemurosaurus was one of the many diverse and bizarre therapsids that thrived before the rise of the dinosaurs.
Lemurosaurus is an example of how life on Earth has changed over time and how mammals evolved from reptilian ancestors.
