Diadectes

About Diadectes

This large and terrifying looking animal was actually a gentle giant. Diadectes was a cross between a modern day crocidile and a modern day cow. Diadectes probably spent most of its slow paced life chewing up plants. This large amphibian was one of the early land animals to appear on Earth, and was probably an ancestor to later reptiles like the dinosaurs.
