Fossil of the day #4

Standard

Today’s fossil is a repeat of an older photo that I think needs more exposure:OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is Archosaurus rossicus Tatarinov, 1960, an archosauriforms from Russia. The body is similar to a lizard’s, while the down-turned premaxilla is very peculiar. Unfortunately, the temporary exhibition in Halmstad where I saw this only had the skull.
