Millions of years ago, the ancestors of whales took to the water. Over time, they evolved to become exclusively marine organisms, and in time some species even became bigger than the dinosaurs.
Hanging above are casts of the ancient versions of contemporary whales.
Here we have the fossil of a small mammal, with artistic renderings on the wall, a critter that had a lot in common with the contemporary lemur.
For today I leave off with some more panels. The upper portion of this area was closed off during my visit- another Covid modification. I hope the next time I visit the Museum that I can get up there. It features more early mammals.
