A follow up an earlier story...

Triassic temnospondyl called the  "Kappel Saurian" [Kappeler Saurier] (Mastodonsaurus cappelensis [originally called Heptasaurus]) is now represented by a locally made lifesize model in the basement of the local district museum in Fischbach;  the construction process of the model and diorama can be seen on a monitor in the museum cafe; Rainer Schoch from the Stuttgart museum was consulted on the model and promised casts of the skull for the local museum (in German)
