Curatorial Curiosities

Early reconstruction of a Labyrinthodon

Early reconstruction of a Labyrinthodont: This is mid-19th Century, 1:30 scale model, designed by Benjamin Waterhouse Hawkins to be reproduced life size for the grounds of Crystal Palace. This reconstruction assumed it leapt like a frog and was based only on fragments of jaw and teeth. The Labyrinthodontia are a diverse subclass of amphibians, common between about 390 to 210 million years ago. They evolved to fill many adaptive niches occupied by mammals and reptiles today.
