6.8" Permian Amphibian (Micromelerpeton) - Skin Preservation

The fossil beds of Pfalz in south-western Germany have yielded many spectacular Permian fossils for decades, but the location has been closed to collecting for decades - making such specimens increasingly rare on the market. The Rotliegendes series of mud and siltstones was renowned for its abundant fish and amphibian fossils and this stunning assemblage is a perfect representation of aquatic life that thrived in the area 285 million years ago.

This is a wonderfully preserved amphibian, Micromelerpeton credneri from this formation. It's 6.8" long and shows great detail on the skin preservation. The tiny legs, and hands/feed can be clearly seen along with vertebrae. The matrix is approximately 9.5x7" and has been backed with fiberglass for stability. Comes with a display stand.
