  Eryops - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Eryops is an example of an animal that made successful adaptations in the movement from a water environment to a terrestrial one.
The crossopterygian cleithrum was retained as the clavicle, and the interclavicle was well-developed, lying on the underside of the chest.
Eryops had typical amphibian posture exhibited by the upper arm and upper leg extending nearly straight out from its body, while the forearm and the lower leg extended downward from the upper segment at a near right angle.

 Eryops
Although ossified in crossopterygians and ichthyostegids, the braincase of Eryops was not, in the orbital and otic regions.
In Eryops, like all early amphibians, the teeth were replaced in waves which traveled from the front of the jaw to the back in such a way that every other tooth was mature, and the ones in between were young.
The pectoral girdle of Eryops was highly developed with a larger size for an increased muscle attachment to it and to the limb.

 [No title]
In Eryops, like all early amphibians, the teeth were replaced in waves which traveled from the front of the jaw to the back in such a way that every other tooth was mature, and the ones in between were young (Romer, 1966).
Ligamentous attachments within the limbs were present in Eryops, being important because they were the precursor to bony and cartilagenous variations seen in modern terrestrial animals which use their limbs as a means of transport (Olson, 1936).
While Eryops and its temnospondylous relatives were themselves an evolutionary dead-end, they were members of a larger group of amphibians which went on to give rise to the reptiles, who, in turn, begat the birds and mammals.

Eryops, shown here lunging after a xenacanth shark, exemplifies the niche that temnospondyls returned to time and time again—that of the “crocamander” or “frogodile”.
And one hundred million years after that, when true crocodiles had muscled in on their territory in most of the world, the last of the”crocamanders” were still hunting in the relatively isolated waters of Australia.
Eryops is typically pictured as a squat, fat beast with a large, frog-like head and a somewhat insipid grin.

 Temnospondyli
Temnospondyli is a stem-based taxon including all choanates more closely related to Eryops than to amniotes (Laurin, 1998a).
The proposition of de Queiroz and Gauthier (1992) of defining Temnospondyli as a stem-based taxon including all tetrapods more closely related to modern amphibians than to Amniota is rejected because the phylogeny of Laurin and Reisz (1997) suggests that this definition would exclude most genera that have been assigned to the Temnospondyli (Laurin, 1998a).

Actually, the intercentrum of Eryops is not all that well developed, even compared to Ichthyostega.
Nevertheless, Eryops is the archetype around which the idea of a temnospondyl revolves.
For example, it is all well and good to say that it used an inertial snap of the jaws to capture prey; but it is difficult to snap anything that big underwater, and equally difficult to imagine Eryops as a terrestrial hunter.
