I'd had kind of a rough day... and then my new Paleozoic Pals plush toys cheered me up. :) I got myself a Gorgonops because I love gorgonopsids and was so thrilled when I found out they were doing a Gorgonops plush. Gorgonopsids were pretty much the tigers of the Permian. So epic. 

My reconstruction here is very, very, very hypothetical and definitely errs more on the mammalian side of Synapsida. But you never know, gorgonopsids could have been big ol' fluffbabies! 

I also kinda made this one look pretty rodent-like, but I love rodents so I'm not even mad. I had a pet rat in third grade. To me it just kinda made sense because most early mammals looked a lot like rodents, so maybe some therapsids did too.
