huge SCLEROCEPHALUS HAEUSERI
Reference : AMPHIB010
A "killer" that was into my personnal collection for many years.

Name : SCLEROCEPHALUS HAEUSERI
Age : LOWER PERMIAN /JECKENBACH FORM.
Location : ODERNHEIM /GERMANY

This Sclerocephalus is really in good condition ,and it has very good contrast with the slab. It is not possible to find some of these amphibian with completely original tail , so this one has equally 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 head).
This amphibian is 53 cm onto a 33 x 73 cm slab. Since the original matrix was very thin and of very small size (I was told it has irregular 5 to 10 cm around the body with very ugly look) ,the previous owner asked the preparator to inlaid the complete fossil into a new slab. This is very usualy the case , but most of the resellers didn't know.
So this slab is now very stable. Back side was reinforced with glas fiber and resin (as usual for those bigger slabs).

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