CHOICE GRADE PERMIAN BRANCHIOSAUR AMPHIBIAN SALAMANDER FOSSIL ON MATRIX
PERIOD: 280 million years ago
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.
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.
