The massive jaws of Megalodon, the armored fish Dunkleosteus, and the world-famous ichthyosaur fossils are just some of the treasures in the Museum’s Hall of Vertebrate Origins, which traces the evolution of vertebrates back more than 500 million years. 

Researcher Allison Bronson, who completed her Ph.D. degree at the Museum’s Richard Gilder Graduate School, leads this virtual tour to see some of the Museum’s oldest and most remarkable fossil vertebrate specimens. Bring your questions about early fishes, amphibians, and reptiles!

Join the watch party on Friday, September 11, at 11 am EDT.
