Anthracosaurus russeli by jconway Anthracosaurus russeli by jconway
So, I bought a book: The Rise of Amphibians by Robert Carroll; which is excellent in many ways, the most important being tons and tons of skeletal reconstructions. On page 88 I found a drawing of what has to be one of the most awesome (in the thirteen year old boy sense) skulls on, like, any animal, like, ever... dude. Ahem... anyway, here it is, the Demon Newt of Doom*, the tyrannosaur of slimy carboniferous swamp dwellers, the terror of undersized vertebrate and oversized invertebrate alike, the one, and possibly of many: Anthracosaurus russeli in all it's pterygoidal toothy glory!

*Yes I know it's not a newt you nerds.

Wow. Just wow.
I love the colors here. The pink jaws of the horrible, horrible monster rising out of the green swamp water.
