Dinogorgon

Dinogorgon ("terrible gorgon") was a gorgonopsid that lived in the Late Permian period of South Africa. Dinogorgon was a predator that ate reptiles and smaller therapsids. Its closest relatives included Lycaenops, and possibly Gorgonops. Like all other gorgonopsids, Dinogorgon perished prior to, or during the Permian-Triassic Extinction Event.
