If one more person asks me if I “speak Indian,” I’m going to lose my fucking mind.
This would have been helpful.

Riverdance - The Final Performance (ca. 1997)
No way would I ever watch this four or five times a year and find it just as astonishing each time.
Because that would be really weird and way off-brand.

The two weasel toothed, Diictodon (1876)
Phylum : Chordata
Class : Synapsida
Order : Therapsida
Infraorder : Dicynodontia
Family : Pylaecephalidae
Genus : Diictodon
Species : D. feliceps, D. galeops, D. grimbeeki, D. ictidops, D. palustris, D. psittacops, D. parringtoni
As a therapsid, Diictodon shared many features with modern day mammals. Most noticeably, they made burrows into the earth. These burrows could be up to 1.5 m deep. Many scientists believe that Diictodon lived like the modern gopher. These could have been used to escape the heat of the desert, which was the dominant environment on the continent of Pangaea in the Late Permian Period. Inside these burrows, nests have been found, where Diictodon skeletons are present. They were social and gregarious, and lived together, with numerous burrows in 500 square meters of space. However, their burrows were unconnected and did not form any large colonies. Many Diictodon nested close to flood plains, and some specimens may have been killed as water flowed into the nests, drowning the animals. Diictodon had no known rival species competing in its niche, so they may have competed primarily with others of their species for the little plant material available.
Like all dicynodonts, Diictodon were herbivorous. They used their beaks to break off pieces of the sparse desert shrubs. Like modern desert animals, Diictodon may have had unusually efficient digestive systems, due to the lack of nutrients present in desert plants. As burrowing animals, they may have fed off of water-rich plant tubers (roots).
