  • Ichthyostega, Devonian Tetrapod

    Depiction of the early amphibian Ichthyostega on the edge of a freshwater pond within a proto-conifer forest of large Archaeopteris trees during the late Devonian, some 350 million years ago--a time when the first canopy forests appeared on Earth. Since the 1990's, a reassessment of the fossil reconstructions for Ichthyostega now suggests this tetrapod probably was not as well suited for walking on land as was first believed and instead used its limbs for traveling over shallow stream and pond margins.
