The Permian is a geologic period and system which extends from 298.9  0.2 to 252.2 0.5 Million years ago. It is the last period of the Paleozoic Era, following the Carboniferous Period and preceding the Triassic Period of the Mesozoic Era.

The Permian witnessed the diversification of the early amniotes into the ancestral groups of the mammals, turtles, lepidosaurs and archosaurs. The world at the time was dominated by a single super continent known as Pangaea, surrounded by a global ocean called Panthalassa.

The Permian Period along with the Paleozoic Era ended with the largest mass extinction in Earths history, in which nearly 90 percent of marine species and 70 percent of terrestrial species died out. It would take well into the Triassic for life to recover from this catastrophe.
