Caption: Carboniferous amphibian. Artwork of an Eryops amphibian (orange, lower centre) crawling among the swamp trees and vegetation that dominated the Earth during the Carboniferous Period (354-290 million years ago). These swamp plants eventually formed large beds of coal underground. The plants shown here are: Sphenophyllum emarginatum (lower left), a Calamites (lower right) and a tree fern (centre). The towering tree trunks are Lepidodendron, with stages of this plant's growth shown in the background.
