Nyctiphruretus acudens

Locality:Mesen River, northern part of European Russia
Length:0.33 meters


Hundreds of fossils of the species Nyctiphruretus acudens were found well preserved near the Mezen River of European Russia in all stages of growth. The dentition identified that Nyctiphruretus was a herbivore. Based on the large numbers of individuals found and the sediment that they were found in, it appears that their diet consisted of aquatic plants. Adults discovered averaged 36 cm in length with a 4.4 cm skull that was crushed but recognisable. Nyctiphruretus is an extinct genus of reptiles distantly related to turtles altough they looked more like lizards and probably don´t belong to the actual turtle lineage. This plaque is a replica of Nyctiphruretus acudens encased in fossilized lake sediments and the shipping for this one is free!
