About the Dinosaur:
Eryops /ˈɛəri.ɒps/ meaning "drawn-out face" because most of its skull was in front of its eyes (Greek ἐρύειν, eryein = drawn-out + ὤψ, ops = face) is a genus of extinct, amphibious temnospondyls. It contains the single species Eryops megacephalus, the fossils of which are found mainly in early Permian (about 295 million years ago) rocks of the Texas Red Beds, located in Archer County, Texas. Fossils have also been found in late Carboniferous period rocks from New Mexico. Several complete skeletons of Eryops have been found in lower Permian rocks, but skull bones and teeth are its most common fossils. 
Eryops is a tournament legendary amphibian. It costs 7,000 DNA and takes 7 days to incubate
- Though an amphibian, Eryops is also an ancestor of modern mammals! It was one of the first reptiles to walk on land!
- Eryops lived around 295 million years ago. At 1,5-2 meters, it was one of the biggest land animals of its time!
- Lucky enough to discover a naturally mummified specimen, paleontologists have actually handled the Eryops's skin!
- Did you know that Eryops means "drawn out face" because its eyes were so far back from its skull?
