Fossils and Evolution

Now, more animals has come to Fossils and Evolution, our amazing exhibition of life on Earth. The dinosaurs are back!

Over millions of years, life forms vary in appearance. Species evolve and become extinct. Continents move and volcanoes spew out their gases. At times it is hot, other times it is ice cold.

All such changes have influenced the forms that life takes on Earth today. Our planet continues to change, and humans with it.
