This is a well detailed museum quality reproduction of the mammal-like reptile Thrinaxodon, cynodont from the Late Triassic (240 million years) of South Africa. The reproduction Skeleton measures 250mm x 160mm.

Note: Thrinaxodon (pronounced thrin-AX-ah-DON) was a cat-sized cynodont, an ancestor of the mammals, but not a mammal itself. Thrinaxodon was not a dinosaur. This therapsid lived during the late Triassic period, roughly 240 million years ago. Small holes in the snout bones suggest that it may have had whiskers, a mammalian characteristic. Its teeth were also similar to those of mammals. The skull was about 40mm (1.5 inches) long. Fossils have been found in South Africa and Antartica.

Price: 75.00
