Gorgonopsia is an extinct suborder of therapsid synapsids. Like other therapsids, gorgonopsians were at one time called "mammal-like reptiles," as well as "stem mammals".
Their mammalian specializations include differentiated (heterodont) tooth shape, a fully developed temporal fenestra, pillar-like rear legs, a vaulted palate that may have facilitated breathing while holding the prey, and incipiently developed ear bones. Gorgonopsians are a part of a group of therapsids called theriodonts, which includes mammals. They were among the largest carnivores of the late Permian. The largest known, Inostrancevia, was the size of a large bear with a 45 cm long skull, and 12 cm long saber-like teeth (clearly an adaptation to being a carnivore). They likely did not have a full pelage but whether they had bristles, scales or naked skin is unknown. They may have had a combination of all of them, as some mammals still do.
