About Lycaenops

Lycaenops roamed the Earth around 280 million years ago. This animal was neither a reptile nor a mammal, but instead belonged to another group of animals called the Synapsidas.

Synapsidas had many features that were both like reptiles and like mammals.
Lycaenops was a slender, light built predator that could probably run very quickly for great distances. It is possible that Lycaenops hunted in packs like modern day wolfs.
