“This one looks a lot like a hog. But it looks scarier that it actually is. Let’s hope it does not dig a whole under the fence. ”

– Claire Dearing

Lystrosaurus was a herbivorous dinosaur that lived around the Late Permian and Early Triassic at what is now Antarctica, India, and South Africa or in other words somewhere about 250 million years ago.

The Lystrosauruses were not very big in size as they ranged from the size of a dog up to the size of 2.5 meters in length.

The Lystrosaurus had only two teeth in the form of a pair of tusk-like canines and is thought to have had a birdlike beak that was used to bite off pieces of vegetation.

It is believed that the Lystrosauruses lived in burrows due to the unusual structure of their limbs suggesting that it was good at digging holes.
