The Glossopteris are a prehistoric order of seed ferns that lived around 300 to 200 million years ago. They derive their name from the Greek words for “tongue” and “fern” due to their leaves being tongue-shaped! They were the largest and best-known genus of the prehistoric order of seed ferns and could grow to a staggering 30 metres (98ft) tall! They favoured a swampy habitat, and had leaves which could grow up to around a meter in length!

ACTUAL AS SEENThe image shows the EXACT unique specimen you will receive. Measurements are as accurate as possible, though be aware measuring precise dimensions can be difficult from irregular shaped items. Whilst we portray colours as close to life-like as we can, colours will vary if taken in sunlight, indoors, from monitor to monitor and device to device.
