Placerias

Today’s Prehistoric Beast is the herbivorous dicynodont, Placerias which roamed the Earth in the upper Triassic. This two-tusked therapsid was one of the largest and most widespread of its day using it’s beak to shear through tough planter material of the era. Although completely unrelated this animal’s respective size and lifestyle are presumably much like that of a modern day Hippopotamus.
