Eryops megacephalus (Greek "drawn-out face") is a representative of temnospondyls among early permians. (Sakmarian age, about 295 million years ago) in the southwestern United States, primarily in the Admiral Formation of Texas. Eryops was a big predator of its time, which could compete with many land synapsids. Unlike most other temnospondyls, it had a strong body and legs. However its bone microanatomy indicates aquatic or semi-aquatic lifestyle. Eryops, most likely, was not an active hunter, and attacked its prey from an ambush. Its main prey was fish and small quadrupeds.
