Offered is a fascinating and essentially complete reptile from the Late Permian of Madagascar; preserved in fine detail an articulated example of the aquatic lizard-like reptile Barosaurus besairiei Piveteau, 1955.
At 20cm this is a good sized specimen. It has all four limbs essentially complete with well preserved digits, tarsals and carpals etc, The skull is intact and the vertebrae and ribs are articulated................many of the ribs show circular cross-sections; testimony to their original nature, which holds for all of the bones under magnification too.
From the Lower Sakemena Formation (Lopingian) of the Morondava Basin, further cleaning with modern air tools would greatly enhance this already displayable specimen.
Matrix approx 22cm X 17cm X.5cm: weight 1.8kg.
Affordable price for such a well preserved and essentially complete example and a fascinating legacy of late Palaeozoic life.
Although I sell a very wide range of fossils from Pre- Cambrian to Pleistocene age, I specialize in trilobites from all over the globe and in particular, British species.
I collect regularly in the UK, with more than forty five years of fieldwork experience and probably the best working knowledge of British trilobite localities. I have a doctorate and a masters degree in trilobite taxonomy and British Palaeozoic stratigraphy and an Open University degree in Natural Sciences.
If you are an amateur collector, a more serious scientific collector, or an agent for an educational organization ( e.g College, University or Museum), I can supply materials to suit your needs! I also buy whole collections and trade materials too. Visits are welcome,by appointment only.
