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.
