Details

Neusticosaurus edwardsii may have been an ancestor of the pleisiosaurs, and if not, it was closely related. It was a primitive, carnivorous, marine reptile that probably ate fish. It probably was an amphibious dweller in near-shore waters. Like modern reptiles, it had five digits in its hands and feet, and probably swam similarly to aquatic lizards or crocodiles. It was also very closely related to a Chinese pachypleurosaur, Keichousaurus.

Its remains have been found in Middle Triassic marine rocks of Europe.

Neusticosaurus specimens are rare. This item makes it possible for you to own a cast replica of one of the best originals of this genus we’ve ever seen.

Available as an unpainted, unmounted cast suitable for some research or reference purposes.

Note: some portions of the original fossil may have been scientifically restored.

Age Middle Triassic [~ 230MYA]
Locality Switzerland
