Thrinaxodon
Thrinaxodon was a small meat-eating cynodont

that lived on the Late Triassic 250 million years ago.

It is characterized by having dog-like canine, molar,

and incisor teeth. Thrinaxodon was able to breathe

while eating, a characteristic that most reptiles do not

yet have. It is suspected that thrinxodon may have

been covered in hair, suggesting the climate consisted of hot days and cold nights.

According to its powerful front legs, it may have lived in burrows only coming out at

night to hunt for food. Litter habits range from from three to five pups. If faced

with starvation, they will kill and eat their own young. Males may have used scent traces to mark their

territory. When another male stumbles across another's territory, it is a fight to the death.

Judging by their thick necks they could hold large vocal cords to create a low-pithch growl to warn off

predators.
