AbstractWe present a comprehensive qualitative and quantitative study of the manus of a new therocephalian specimen referable to Tetracynodon from the Early Triassic of South Africa. We examined 18 specimens, representing at least 12 genera, including basal therocephalians (Lycosuchidae and Scylacosauridae) and eutherocephalians (Akidnognathidae, Whaitsioidea and Baurioidea). A temporal range of 23 million years through the Permo-Triassic (Wordian to Anisian) was surveyed. A principal component ...

Abstract Gekkota (geckos and pygopodids) is a clade thought to have originated in the Early Cretaceous and that today exhibits one of the most remarkable scansorial capabilities among lizards. Little information is available regarding the origin of scansoriality, which subsequently became widespread and diverse in terms of ecomorphology in this clade. An undescribed amber fossil (MCZ R–190835) from mid-Cretaceous outcrops of the north of Myanmar dated at 99 Ma, previously assigned to stem Gekkot...

Grasping is one of a few adaptive mechanisms that, in conjunction with clinging, hooking, arm swinging, adhering, and flying, allowed for incursion into the arboreal eco-space. Little research has been done that addresses grasping as an enhanced manual ability in non-mammalian tetrapods, with the exception of studies comparing the anatomy of muscle and tendon structure. Previous studies showed that grasping abilities allow exploitation for narrow branch habitats and that this adaptation has clea...

One of the most remarkable hand movements is grasping. This ability has been repetitively associated with the evolution of the human lineage towards the development of technology. Besides mammals, other tetrapods have also evolved significant, and in some cases surprising, forelimb prehensile capabilities. In this study, we present a qualitative analysis of the carpal bones in diverse lizard taxa. Our main goal is to make a survey of the carpal morphology of different squamatans and to interpret...
