Xenobrachyops was a small salamander-like amphibian known for its short broad head. The temnospondyls are a group of early amphibians that mostly lived in freshwater. Like frogs today they most likely ate insects or small vertebrate animals. These amphibians survived in Australia long after they did elsewhere in the world. Xenobarchyops is on display in the Lost Creatures exhibit at Queensland Museum, South Bank.
