Lystrosaurus is a genus of dicynodont therapsid that originated in the Late Permian to the Early Triassic. It was believed to live in what is now known as Antarctica, India, China, Mongolia, European Russia, and even South Africa, meaning that it was one of the few eukaryotes who proved the theory of continental drift and that all of Earth’s continents at the time it lived was a giant landmass called Pangaea.
