Discosauriscus pulcherrimus was a proto-reptile with wide jaws with sharp teeth, short limbs and a relatively long tail.

It lived around 298 to 280 million years ago in what is now Czech Republic. They're described as having external gills, and some pits in their skulls probably contained ampullary electroreceptor sensory organs making Discosauriscus specialized for detecting weak bioelectric fields produced by other organisms.
