Is anyone familiar at all with Diplocaulus claws? Anything from shape/look, to size? In fact, in many(maybe even most)of the very few pictures that are clear enough to see the feet(of fossils, not art lol)it doesn't look like they really even HAVE any claws to speak of, let alone relatively long ones, but 1 or 2 pictures DO. And for animals that are believed to be heavy diggers, they would probably need to have more than little naked toes. *this is pretty similar to the only other picture of "Diplocaulus claw" I could find, although that is on a for-sale site, not a scientific one:/
Ok it looks like a prety geological creation, but then there is this (photo 3) is it just a shell mold, or could it be some breathing organ thing, coz it is placed lower. And this (photo 4) that is on the highest of the 3 peaks that are formed and sort of reminds me of a mouth with teeth. Found near akrotiri, ayios ermoyenis - curium area cliffs. Its 25cm long and the center 17cm high, it looks like hmm some sort of triple fin, or fish or exploding angry eel ... something that belongs to the sea anyway some more photos next post
