Where does the Deuterosaurus live?

Deuterosaurus is an extinct genus of synapsids that dominated the land during the late Paleozoic.
Deuterosaurus fossils are dated to the middle Permian period, about 267 to 260 million years ago.
Most of the fossils are found in Russia, especially in the Orenburg Oblast region.


What does the Deuterosaurus look like?

Deuterosaurus was an extinct genus of dinocephalian therapsids, one of the non-mammalian synapsids that lived during the late Paleozoic era.

It was a very large animal, the size of a modern grizzly bear, with a length of 5–6 meters (15–18 ft) and a weight of about half a ton.

This animal had a short and high skull, with long dagger-like canine teeth and cone-like post-canine teeth.

It also had a thickening of the skull above the eyes and on the nose, possibly for head-butting.

Its eyes were partly slanted forward, giving it some degree of stereo vision.

Deuterosaurus had a long tail and short but massive legs that were held splayed, like a crocodile.

It is found in what is now Siberia, and may have been omnivorous, like a bear, or herbivorous, rather than carnivorous like most of its relatives.

Some additional facts are:
  • Deuterosaurus is named after the Greek word for "second lizard", because it was initially thought to be a dinosaur by T.H. Huxley in 1869.

  • They belongs to the family Deuterosauridae, which is either a subgroup of Anteosauria or Tapinocephalia, two clades of dinocephalian therapsids.

  • Deuterosaurus has two known species: D. biarmicus, the type species, and D. jubilaei, which was formerly assigned to a separate genus called Mnemeiosaurus.
