Permian Branchiosaur (Amphibian) Fossil - Very Nice

These are fossils of 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.

Both of the individuals on this piece of shale are much larger and more detailed than most Apateon specimens. You can clearly see soft bodied preservation of their bodies.
