PERMIAN BRANCHIOSAURUS AMPHIBIAN ON MATRIX

Pfalz, Germany

PERMIAN PERIOD:  280 million years ago

SPECIAL NOTE:  The current laws in this region of Germany now forbid the collection of these remarkable fossils.  Such legislation has permanently ended the supply of such magnificent specimens such as this one being offered here.  This rare example comes from an old German private collection and was collected long ago before the ban was enacted.  With digging in the formation now off-limits, these rare German Permian fossils are sure to appreciate in value and become increasingly difficult to acquire.

This fossil BRANCHIOSAUR is a type of amphibian that once inhabited the Permian swamps of what is now Southwest Germany.  There are numerous of these specimens on the market but many of these Branchiosaur fossils have artificially restored skeletons with black colored pencil before they are coated to seal the enhancement.  We received this specimen in its uncoated, "raw" state as it was collected long ago.  We applied the consolidant on the fossilized skeleton ourselves to stabilize and bring out the fossil against the shale matrix in which it was preserved on and we guarantee the fossil skeleton of the amphibian you see above is 100% authentic.
