“My fossil bones are all unpacked at the College of Surgeons… Some of them are turning out Great treasures … There is a[nother] head, as large as they can guess, must have been a gnawing animal. Conceive a Rat or a Hare of such a size – What famous cats they ought to have had in those days”.
— Charles Darwin
