Permian tree-climbing reptile from Germany preserved with skin and scales
This find dates to the Permian, but the amazing state of preservation makes
it noteworthy. Various German news sources have had stories about this
fossil throughout the week, and a version is now available in English. It's
not clear if it's a diapsid or a parareptile, at least from the info
available in news stories. It's not a true "lizard," of course, although it
looks very similar to a modern iguana. The fossil has been nicknamed
"Helge" after the singer and comedian Helge Schneider.
