Age of Mammals|
As you pass through the Cenozoic Arch, you're entering the most recent era in the history of life on Earth. The Cenozoic is sometimes referred to as the Age of Mammals, a time of experimentation with a wide range of adaptations. Here you will learn that change, not stability, is the nature of our world.
Mammal diversity exploded to include many interesting forms, such as sheep-sized herbivores, fast-running flesh-eaters and small insect-eaters. Beavers, wolf-like Mesonyx, primitive whales, three-toed horses, and rhinos also began to appear.
Visitors can trace the evolution of mammals as they became more modern and recognizable.
