Fossil Salamander
1 Attachment(s)
I got this Permian temnospondyl this weekend. Strictly speaking it's not a salamander per se, but I believe it's a branchiasaur, which had external gills, a basic caudate body plan and lived about 250 to 300 million years ago.

Update: I acquired a new Permian specimen this weekend. This one is a larval Sclerocephalus, a contemporary and predator of Branchiasaurus.

I put them into an album for easy viewing:
