AMPHIBIAN RIB SECTION WITH TOOTH MARK - PERMIAN, TEXAS.


indet. Amphibian.

Mid section of rib from an Amphibian. One surface shows a 2.3cm long, 0.3 cm. wide gash. This is a tooth drag mark from an attack by a predator. In this instance the most likely candidate is the apex Amphibian predator of the time, Eryops megacephalus. There are numerous Amphibians recorded from the Texas Red Beds (Trimerorachis, Seymouria, Diplocaulus) but this rib could have come from any of these ,or even another Eryops. Superb example and rarely seen for sale.

Permian. Texas red Beds.
Archer County, Texas, U.S.A.

Bone : 5.5cm. long.
