The Edaphosaurus was an herbivorous dinosaur from the Carboniferous period. The name means pavement lizard. It had a small head and a huge back sail with cross-bars that may have supported more fat and flesh than that of dimetrodon. It has been suggested that the sail was possibly used for camouflage, protection against predators, wind-powered sailing over water, or fat storage areas.
