Is this real? It doesn't look like it was made in photoshop, and if it's a model they took alot of time to make one and not advertise or sell it.

I have seen this pic before, but I can't remember where. Do you have a link with the story? It looks like the body is like that of a salamander.

Didn't have a story. Found it on an imageboard.

Says here it's a Japanese model. Pretty damn cool looking though.

but I can translate. Basically it says, "This is a model made from oil clay and gypsum. It was made for a magazine photo contest in 1992"

even after years at the U of Alabama, what the hell is a Diplocaulus?

I'm no expert, but I think it is an extinct prehistoric reptile, but like I said, I'm not expert...

Pretty close OLDMAN_O its a extinct prehistoric amphibian.

It really has a interesting head design looks like it might have been good for digging in mud to find bugs and such, but Im not a expert either


Its clear this isnt real but we have found "extinct" prehistoric animals before so I can see how that could fool people very life like and not something insane like a T-rex.

That would explain why it looked like a scanned picture. Thanks.

I think the head was shaped like that so it couldn't be eaten by predators?

here a pic of 1. A prehistoric amphibian lived in swamps, not too much is known about it i.e the hight and weight length ect i was convinced it was real untill i found out it was fake.

So are they making a model of something they saw in the past few years or from a skeleton or what they think it looked like thousands to millions of years ago?

Looks like I forgot to notice that reptiles don't like being up to thier nose in water, oh well.

It is an extinct salamander that has that head to go upstream in a river and so it is hard to eat.
