Secodontosaurus by NTamura Secodontosaurus by NTamura
Secodontosaurus obtusidens was a rare pelycosaur from the Early Permian of Texas. Related to Dimetrodon, but compared to its famous relative, it had a rather elongated snout with a row of small teeth, an indication of a specialized diet on small animals.

Not really. Seco is known from complete skulls as well as vertebral columns with sail and other fragments.

Oh my God. It looks like all those "Aligator with a Glued On Fin" 'dinosaurs' from the movies of the 40s/50s(Albiet, without the tail structure of a modern gator)!

That's just amazing!

Yeah, just like how Ludodactylus is the real life version of the pop culture Pteranodon. I'm always seeing cheap toys of what I assumed were just inaccurate gator-headed Dimetrodon... Is Secodontosaurus' skull wide like an alligator, or tall and narrow like Dimetrodon?

No, unlike an aligator's the skull was rather narrow.
