What does the Batrachosaurus look like?

Batrachosaurus was an extinct amphibian that lived in Germany during the Middle Triassic, about 250 million years ago.

It belonged to the group of temnospondyls, which were among the earliest and most diverse tetrapods.

Batrachosaurus had a flat, broad head with small eyes and nostrils, and a large mouth with many sharp teeth.

Its body was long and slender, with four short limbs and a long tail.

It had bony plates on its back and belly, and a row of spines along its spine.

It probably lived in freshwater habitats and fed on fish and other small animals.

It may have been related to Mastodonsaurus, another large temnospondyl from the same time and place.

Some additional facts are:
  • Batrachosaurus was about 70 cm long, and its skull was about 12 cm long.
  • Batrachosaurus is known from only a few fossil specimens, mostly from the Erfurt Formation in Thuringia, Germany.
  • Batrachosaurus was named by Joseph Fitzinger in 1837, based on a partial skull and lower jaw.
