Drepanosaurus (2012)

Drepanosaurus unguicaudatus

Length 25cm
Scale 1/2

Of course, I know these plants were not in Triassic.  I took this picture with imagination as "if we can keep this animal".

My Drepanosaurus with Dan Chure and his wife  at SVP annual meeting in 2013.
He presented on new specimens of Drepanosaurus at the SVP, and used my work images in the presentation.
