Tulerpeton arm and leg

Tulerpeton's limbs were longer but still polydactyl.

Tulerpeton is known from the Late Devonian in an area influenced by marine environments. Tulerpeton had evolved longer limbs and its humerus was similar to the later anthracasaurs. It possessed six digits on both hands and feet. It had lost its internal gills although it still retained the anocleithrum (Clack, 2002).
