I can't really tell from the picture but from the question
1. Lystrosauridae 2. It could burrow and therefore escape the climatic effects of the extinction. Also it could travel distances very quickly 3. Because is survived Permian-Triassic extinction and afterwards it populated the region in an extremely high density (95% :shock: ) 4. Quick/rapid breathing 5. Sauropsids (birds/reptiles) and Synapsids (mammals)
