Super Crocodilians: monster crocs in NT
Right now a fascinating exhibition is on at the Northern Territory Museum and Art Gallery in Darwin.
Two hundred years ago, one of the world’s greatest scientists was born, Charles Darwin. Famous for his theory of evolution, Charles Darwin reshaped the world’s perception on the origin of living organisms.
Supercrocodilians: Darwin’s ultimate survival story demonstrates Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution through crocodilians. Supercrocodilians features an array of crocodilian specimens from ancient fossils to modern examples.
Come face-to-face with one of the largest crocodilians known to have ever existed, which may have measured over 12 metres in length. See Australian fossil species from the last 100 million years, which show a diversity of aquatic forms as well as species apparently better adapted for a life on land.
Modern crocodilians, many from overseas, are included in the exhibition, which ends January 2011. Catch it while you can!
