Characteristics of the animals

The largest Pelicosaurus (herbivore). The Pelicosaurus group (Oden Pelycosauria) is a group of mammal-like reptiles that were mostly carnivorous. They lived from the late Carboniferous to the late Permian and were some of the most important faunal animals worldwide. Although it is an artificial grouping of organisms, it includes animals that in their external morphology are similar to each other and are generally basal synapsids. However, the largest herbivorous member of the group was Cotylorhynchus hancocki, over 4 m long and weighing 500 kg, belonged to the suborder Caseasauria and lived from the Lower to Middle Permian (272.5 to 265 Ma) in what is now southern North America.1
