Here is a very detailed fossil of a rare Jurassic amphibian. This is an excellent SPLIT PAIR example of Salamandra adipem, a Salamander, from China. This specimen was acquired in an old collection. This large vertebrate fossil is extremely detailed and very nicely preserved. The amphibian is wonderfully outstretched and is nicely splayed out, not all jumbled up. The head is well preserved, the distinct backbone is easily seen, and even parts of all four limbs are present, which is extremely rare! The fossil Salamander has cool, natural coloration which contrasts beautifully with the lighter-colored matrix. The well-articulated fossil is beautifully showcased on the large plate of dense shale. And this is a SPLIT PAIR fossil - both the part and counterpart are present and offered together! This is a very displayable and collectible example of a fossilized Salamander amphibian from Asia.

A Certificate of Authenticity from EXTINCTIONS is included with this specimen.
