BTS - HOP - Terrestrial Life Debuts

Because the Morian Hall of Paleontology is too large to tour in one evening, we are debuting a new series that will cover the hall section by section. Led by HMNS staff trainer, James Washington, each tour will include a hands-on fossil experience.

 

When life came out of the water and conquered land, our witnesses are the armor-headed amphibians like "boomerang-headed" Diplocaulus. You'll meet the root of our own human family tree in the fabulous fin-backed reptile, Dimetrodon, apex predator of the Texas Permian, 300 million years ago.

 

Catastrophic die-offs at the end of the Permian Period (250 million years ago) exterminated most of the dominant life forms-but the empty niches welcomed new clans of dynamic creatures. Reptiles seized control of the terrestrial realm. Giant croc-oids dug tubers, munched leaves and attacked each other. By 200 million years ago, crocodile descendants-the first dinosaurs-were expanding their influence.
