Horseshoe Crabs and Velvet Worms
The Story of the Animals and Plants That Time Has Left Behind
From Library Staff
Former Natural History Museum (London) paleontologist Fortey gives us the stories of those plants, animals, and other creatures that have survived from Earth's early days .
The history of life on earth told through the stories of animals that have survived, almost unchanged, for millions of years. Evolution has not completely wiped out its tracks as more advanced organisms came to be. And that history is far older, and much stranger, than many of us would ever guess.
