Edaphosaurus meaning 'pavement lizard' for its dense clusters of teeth that lived in North America and Europe in the Late Carboniferous to Early Permian, around 303 to 272 million years ago. It is not a dinosaur but a proto-mammal (Synapsid) like Dimetrodon who was an apex predator in the same period. However, unlike Dimetrodon Edaphosaurus was a plant-eating (herbivore) four-legged land dwelling vertebrate.
Edaphosaurus had a small head compared with its body size and a dense pavement of teeth for crushing vegetation. like the Dimetrodon it had a sail on its back but was very different in shape and internal structure; the Edaphosaurus sails must have evolved independently of Dimetrodon.
