Descrizione
Huge fossil amphibian - Sclerocephalus haeuseri - 53 cm !! - 11.4 kg
Permian (280 million years) - Odernheim - Germany

A "killer" that was in my personnal collection for many years.

Name : Sclerocephalus haeuseri
Age : Lower Permian / Jeckenbach Formation
Location : Odernheim, Germany

This Sclerocephalus is in very good condition, and it has very good contrast with the slab. It is not possible to find these amphibians with completely original tail, so this one has some restorations done to the tail. Part of the tail is natural with skin, part is colored. The other parts of the amphibian are very detailed and raised very well from matrix (especialy the skull).

This amphibian measures 53 cm, on a 33 x 73 cm slab. The weight is 11.4 kg. Back side was reinforced with glas fiber and resin (as usual for those larger slabs).

All in all we have here a fossil ready for a museum.
