Dear AJ, Thank you for your interest. This is a very broad question indeed. Our lab has produced some papers about the behaviour of dinocephalians. Certainly there are some of the answers you are looking for here: https://peerj.com/articles/3496/ https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0161457 For the Permian diapsid, so far we have the oldest lepidosaurian (Heleosuchus) and the oldest squamate (Paliguana) in the South African Permian. Most noticeably, we have Eunotosaurus, which is a diapsid turtle ancestor that demonstrate that turtles belong to the clade Diapsida. Sincerely Bruce Rubidge
