Diplocaulus claws

Recommended Posts

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:/

Would anyone out there in fossil forum world happen to know of any Permian, prehistoric amphibian, or better yet, Permian amphibian experts to point me in the direction of? 

 

Unfortunately this is a time sensitive issue, so any help at all would be extremely welcome and appreciated!
