Dimetrodon dinosaur facts VR 360 video education
The next video in the VR Jurassic Encyclopedia series is now available on youtube. In this video, we bring you new and unknown facts about the dinosaur that is Dimetrodon.
Dimetrodon was a relative of primitive extinct mammals. It was characterized by an upright, sail-like structure on its back. This dinosaur used his “sail” probably to temperature regulation. Dimetrodon lived from about 286 to 270 million years ago during the Permian Period. The fossils of this America were found in the North. The fossil of this dinosaur was discovered in the New USA in Texas and Oklahoma and Mexico.
Dimetrodons were carnivorous and they ate fish, plasmas, sauropods, or other synapsids. It was 3.5 meters long. As for its height, it was up to 2.1 meters, measuring it to the top of the sail. The Dimetron’s weight was close to 300 kilograms.
It is also worth to know that Dimetrodon was not a dinosaur. It was a prehistoric reptile which is technically a type of reptile known as “pelycosaurs“. Dimetrodon was well adapted to a variety of habitats. The theory began due to the fact that fossils were discovered in North America and all over Europe.
Another interesting fact is that there are many different species of Dimetrodon dinosaur. It is estimated that there were 15 different species. If you would like to raise Dimetrodon, you would need to give him a large habitat, a source of water, and a very large amount of meat to eat. As can be seen, breeding this reptile would not be much different from breeding a crocodile.
