Edaphotheria (lit. "ground beasts") are a clade of Platydontia native to the steppe.


As opposed to the tree-dwelling Archeplatydontia, the Edaphotheres evolved from more generalist Platydonts, first emerging around the year 4230ma.

Edaphotheres are fairly small, with all observed clades measuring less than a meter in height. Edaphotheres are the first known species to develop full endothermy, and have more demanding diets as a result. Beyond that, Edaphotheres lead highly diverse lifestyles.
