Giant salamanders co-existed with first dinosaurs

An international1 team including a paleontologist from the Centre de recherches en paléobiodiversité et paléoenvironnements (CNRS / Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle / UPMC) has discovered a new fossil species of "giant salamander" in Portugal. The species, named Metoposaurus algarvensis, was found in rock dating from about 230 million years ago. This research, published on 24 March 2015 in theJournal of Vertebrate Paleontology, confirms that these huge carnivorous amphibians lived and flourished at the time of the first dinosaurs.
