I looks like a kid put their action figure in the microwave. Skeletor maybe?

sure, that's mighty convenient, right about the time that evolution is finally going to be disproved.  There's a photo of Noah with a dinosaur.

Looks like a fossilized archaeoclown.  They had better not get water on it or it will reconstitute, and oh boy!  There will be trouble!

Wait, Paleospondylus? The thing so weird that no one could figure out what it really was and one scientist claimed it might be a larval lungfish? Give it a couple years, other scientists will voice their skepticism about this claim, too.

Here's the paper.

Morphology of Palaeospondylus shows affinity to tetrapod ancestors
