Well, the spelling is clearly wrong. It is either:
Dinodontosaurus or Deinodontosaurus.
As far as I know, this is not a dinosaur. However, there were
many groups of reptile-type animals in the Mesozoic and the
latter part of the Paleozoic. It could be anything from a
therapsid (mammallike reptile) to a protorosaur.
The peace of God be with you.
