The fossilised bones of a tiny amphibian-like creature, dating back 325 million years, have been discovered in Co Clare.

The 10mm-long bones are believed to come from a small amphibian that would have been an ancestor to the first lizards.

The 10mm-long bones are believed to come from a leg and possibly a hip bone of a small amphibian that would have been an ancestor to the first lizards.

The fossil, which discovered in a shale formation, is “the oldest stratigraphically well-constrained tetrapod skeletal fossil material described from Ireland”, according to the article.

Researchers believe it may have been washed out to sea during a storm or flood with the bones eventually settling onto the muddy seafloor where they were buried and turned to fossils.
