1.3" Permian Branchiosaur (Amphibian) Fossil - Germany

This is a fossil of a Branchiosaur, a primitive amphibian during the Permian period, some 280 million years ago. Branchiosaurs were likely semi aquatic and represent one of first animals to move onto the land. It was collected from the Pfalz region of Germany. The region has been closed permanently to collecting for several decades, though there is a considerable number of these fossils on the market from previous collecting.

This specimen is particularly large, larger than the specimens that we've offered in the past. It has wonderful soft bodied preservation of the skin. There is a repaired crack through the rock and the specimen.
