Science at FMNH : Ep. 19 - Antarctic Paleontology
255 million years ago all seven continents formed one super continent called Pangaea. During this time, Antarctica was not a harsh snow and ice covered land, but a lush temperate environment teaming with plant and animal life. Dr. Peter Makovicky and Dr. Nathan Smith in the Geology Department excavate and study the fossil remains of dinosaurs that lived here to better understand the evolution of life on Earth.
