What is the animal Labyrinthodont known for?

Labyrinthodonts are an extinct group of amphibians that lived from the Devonian to the Triassic periods, about 390 to 150 million years ago.
They are known for their distinctive teeth, which had a complex pattern of infolding of the enamel and dentin, giving them a maze-like appearance in cross-section.
This tooth structure made their teeth stronger and more resistant to wear, which was useful for their predatory lifestyle.
Labyrinthodonts are also known for their large and broad skulls, which had many small bones and few openings, resembling the anapsid reptiles.
They had complex vertebrae, which varied in shape and number among different groups.
Labyrinthodonts were diverse and widespread, occupying various aquatic and terrestrial habitats.
Some of them were among the largest amphibians ever, reaching lengths of up to 6 meters.
Labyrinthodonts are not a natural group, but an evolutionary grade that includes the ancestors of modern amphibians and amniotes, as well as some extinct lineages.

Where does the Labyrinthodont live?

Labyrinthodonts were a group of extinct amphibians that lived from the Devonian to the Triassic periods, about 390 to 150 million years ago.
They inhabited various aquatic and terrestrial environments, depending on their adaptations.
Some of the earliest labyrinthodonts, such as Ichthyostega and Acanthostega, were mainly aquatic and had fish-like features, such as fins and gills.
Later labyrinthodonts, such as Temnospondyli and Anthracosaurs, became more terrestrial and had limbs and lungs.
Labyrinthodonts were widespread and successful for over 200 million years, but they declined and went extinct by the end of the Triassic.
