Galechirus is an extinct genus of anomodont therapsid. It was about 30 cm (1 ft) long.
Galechirus is lizard-like in appearance. It is considered to be a dicynodont by some paleontologists; others think Galechirus is a younger form of a larger therapsid. Judging from its teeth, it was an insectivore.
