Paleontology

We humans have been around for about 100.000 years in an Earth that is 4.6 billion years old!

How do we know that dinosaurs ruled the Earth during 175 million years or that a snake as large as a scholar bus existed 60 million years ago?

Meet the people that discover life in the past: Paleontologists!
