Rhynchosaur Triassic reptile

Additional images

One of the best

About the size of a sheep, rhynchosaurs were the most common reptiles in this part of the Triassic period. Although this skull is somewhat crushed, it’s a fantastic specimen, and far more complete than most. The view is from the underside, looking up through the lower jaws.
