All large land reptiles from prehistoric times were dinosaurs

Terrestrial reptiles reached 5 metres in length before the first dinosaurs evolved 230 million years ago. Some - such as sail-backed Dimetrodon, which flourished in North America during the Permian period (290 to 240 million years ago) - were related to dinosaurs, but were not true dinosaurs.
