These Amniotes are one of the oldest known genus of reptile, predating Snakes and Crocodiles (although not Alligators) whose name derives from the Greek for interlocking shields. This particular specimen is exhibited as a stimulating profile with its geodesic segments composing a grand carapace offset by the dainty collection of fish in the scene.
