Ok I also think it is time for us to see more of the members collections . So without further ado show us your Sphenacodontidae collection . is an extinct family of small to large, advanced, carnivorous, Late Pennsylvanian to  middle Permian pelycosaurs. Sphenacodontid fossils are so far known only from North America and Europe and have one of the most ironic creature ever to have lived in there ranks, Dimetrodon.

This is a replica of course, right? If I could get one really cheap, like super clearanced, I'd get one too. Ive seen some full metro reproductions for sale recently, I guess they're popular. One is just half mounted against a body shaped background wall, but I count that as a "full skeleton" repro, just with and asterisk next to it lol

Thank you very much. The claw I have had for about 20years and the tooth was a fantastic gift off Doren.
