You know what, i actually would think that depending on the environmental conditions in which a specific copal was found, the max age would be different from specimen to specimen because they would be changing into amber at different rates. Makes sense seeing as there is such a variety of different "ages" that u've found.

What type of habitat did Dimetrodon live in? I have conflicting sources for that. Swamps? Also was it fast or slow? Again conflicting sources...

My binder says it lived in arid environments, but I'm curious to see what others have to say.

Clearly not very fast, given it's gait, but possibly faster than once thought. That's probably the source of confusion.
