Prehistoric info 7: Sphenotitan

Hi I’m back!
This is a creature that looks like a lizard but isn’t! :lizard:
Etymology: Sphenotitan means wedge titan
About: Sphenotitan is a rhynchocephalian. Rhynchocephalians are a group of reptiles with only one surviving creature right now, the tuatara(which is really cute!). Sphenotitan had a skull length of 100 millimeters, which is relatively large for a rhynchocephalian. It was probably herbivorous. It lived in northwestern Argentina.

I couldn’t find a Sphenotitan fossil, so here’s a tuatara because its really cute


I was so confused when I saw the tatuara in the topic lol
but I agree, they’re adorable


Well it is the last living Rhynchocephalian so I felt like I had to include it!
