Fossil Mammalia

“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

 Letter to his sister Caroline, Nov 9th, 1836

The fossils that were found in the earth extracts are evidence that a series of strange creatures roamed the globe long before the appearance of human beings – who belong to the latest geological era.
