CHOICE GRADE PERMIAN BRANCHIOSAUR AMPHIBIAN SALAMANDER FOSSIL 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.  This fossil is a choice grade specimen of a Permian vertebrate that lived before the first dinosaurs.  Much of the original skeleton including the skull is still present in the rock.  A clear preservant has been applied to protect the specimen.  This example represents a fantastic 'top down' view of the creature and exhibits wonderful articulation.

FINE GRADE  AFFORDABLE EXAMPLE OF PERMIAN VERTEBRATE LIFE THAT EXISTED BEFORE THE DINOSAURS!

3.5" x 3" overall on matrix slab, amphibian is 2" in length
