.95" Permian Reptiliomorph (Desmatodon) Jaw Section - Texas

This is a 1.05" long jaw section with two teeth of the rare, Early Permian reptiliomorph Desmatodon.

Desmatodon is the oldest known diadectid. Like most other diadectids, Desmatodon was a terrestrial herbivore that consumed high-fiber plants. Protruding incisiform teeth and a large digestive tract may have allowed the animal to effectively consume and digest plant material. Being the oldest diadectid, Desmatodon also is the oldest known herbivorous land vertebrate.
