Dimetrodon was a dreaded apex predator that lived about 300-270 million years ago - 40-70 million years before the first prehistoric saurian.

It was not a "real" dinosaur, rather it was a prehistoric reptile and closely related to mammals. It moved like a lizard, since its legs were on the side of its body. 

Dimetrodon preyed upon reptiles, amphibians and fish, which it tore into pieces with its many razor-sharp teeth.

Fun FactDimetrodon's scientific name essentially means "two measures of teeth", because its teeth were of different sizes.
