Dimetrodon for Ubiquity

Ubiquity Month continues!

We were at the Field Museum of Natural History this weekend.   One of my favorite museums in the world.  I love the dinosaur exhibit. Got to see Sue and Lucy, two of my favorite girls in anthropology.  I also got to see the creature I loved as a kid.  The Dimetrodon.  Often confused as a dinosaur these creatures are much, much older.    The also do not appear in the Ubiquity books that I have seen.

So here is my hand at making a monster.

The dimetrodon's skeleton is the inspiration for one of the most prolific beasts of ancient mythology.
The bones of the dimetrodon were trafficked by Mongolian traders wan fairly common throughout the courts and temples of ancient Asia an Europe.

Ancient man did the best with the evidence available to him:
Here we have the robust body and claws of a lion.
Here we also have a pointed beak like an eagle.
And over here are these large curved bones which logic dictates are wing supports.

I love the dimetrodon, and while my kid brother was the dinosaur fan in the family, I treasured my toy dimetrodon (called Dimitri) which was my lone dino toy (and yes, I know full well that, as you say, dimetrodons are pre-dinosaur genus, but you know what I mean).

Dimitri needs to show up in one of my games!

The dimetrodon is a pretty impressive animal. I crazy to think there were a time when animals of that nature roamed the earth.
