Completing the Dimetrodon

In Wild World

Upon completion of the dimetrodon exhibit at the museum in Wild World, Blathers will give the player some information about the creature.

"It lived early on, when dinosaurs first began roaming the earth, wot? And actually, to be quite accurate, it's not even a real dinosaur at all! As we know, dinosaurs were cold-blooded and could not change body temperature. But the dimetrodon could! It used its distinctive back to control heat! For this reason, it is considered what we call a "mammalian reptile," wot? Ah. Hoo. Yes, sorry. I got rather blabby, there. I got heated up, hoo!"

In City Folk

After donating all of the pieces of the dimetrodon to the museum in City Folk, Blathers will give the player information on the creature with the following dialogue.

"...And with that, the dimetrodon is complete! Hoo, what a spectacle! The dimetrodon was from a period early in the history of the dinosaurs, eh wot? In point of fact, it's not even a real dinosaur! That's because it could regulate body temperature, unlike other dinosaurs. The dimetrodon did so by using its distinctively shaped back... Indeed, and that is why it's considered what some call a 'mammalian reptile'!"

In New Leaf

In New Leaf, a plaque by the display offers information about the fossil instead of Blathers.

"Despite it's reptilian appearance, the dimetrodon was not actually a dinosaur, as you'd assume. It was, in fact, a mammal-like reptile that went extinct before the first dinosaurs appeared. It had knife-shaped teeth for slicing, as well as smaller ones for crushing. The large fan on its back was used to regulate body temperature - an important feature of the time."
