From fossils that show early life to skeletons of extinct species, 500 million years of animal life are made accessible through 100 objects

Life on earth has existed for 500 million years. In that time, the evolution and natural selection of species has formed a diversity of life rich in incredible methods of survival, reproduction, and adaption. From penis worms, which existed 508 million years ago, to threatened species such as the white rhino, this beautifully illustrated book takes the reader on a journey through natural history and shows the richness of animal life on our planet like you've never seen it before.
