The Biggest, Smallest and Most Amazing Mammals of All Time
The amazing 200-million-year history of fossil and living mammals was unveiled in the exhibition, Extreme Mammals: The Biggest, Smallest and Most Amazing Mammals of All Time.
Exhibition highlights included a 15-foot tall, life-size re-creation of an Indricotherium, the largest land mammal to walk on land, as well as the smallest mammal known in the fossil record, the rodent-like Batodonaides. Also featured were taxidermy specimens, from the egg-laying platypus, to the recently extinct Tasmanian wolf. The exhibition also included models of spectacular extinct forms, such as Ambulocetus, a "walking whale," and an entire skeleton of the giant hoofed plant-eater, Uintatherium.
Extreme Mammals: The Biggest, Smallest and Most Amazing Mammals of All Time was organized by the American Museum of Natural History, New York, in collaboration with The California Academy of Sciences, San Francisco; The Canadian Museum of Nature, Ottawa, Canada; and the Cleveland Museum of Natural History.
Support for the Bullock Museum's exhibitions and education programs provided by the Texas State History Museum Foundation.
