Trematosaur of Terror!

Currently being described, this front half of a possible Temnospondyl Trematosaur from the Mid Triassic of Sydney similar to Microposaurus casei from South Africa shows a rare lower jaw intact. Like many Labyrinthodonts they possessed internal tusks. This creature has tusks protruding the nostrils! The internal tusks are aprrox 3 inches long. Nothing would have escaped these jaws.
