Cistecephalus

Cistecephalus

Cistecephalus was a mole-sized therapsid that lived in South Africa during the late Permian period, 255 million years ago. It was a small burrowing dicynodont that probably lived like a mole and, unlike other dicynodonts which were herbivores, Cistecephalus ate insects. It also one of the few therapsids to lend its name to an entire geological formation, the Cistecephalus Assemblage Zone in South Africa's Karoo Basin, which has yielded countless fossils of mammal-like reptiles.
