Extreme Mammals, with Xiaoming Wang, Emily Lindsey, and Miguel Ordeñana | Natural History Museum’s Curiosity Show

November 28, 2017

We tour the NHM’s special exhibit Extreme Mammals in this episode, and find out that extremism and extinction are linked across evolutionary time. Meet NHM scientists Dr. Xiaoming Wang, Dr. Emily Lindsey, and Miguel Ordeñana as they show off some exhibit highlights including the giant rhino relative Indricotherium and all five giant cats known from the La Brea Tar Pits. Learn how mountain lions survived the Ice Age, and how one extreme survivor made it all the way across Los Angeles to make a home in Griffith Park.

This comes from the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County. If no film or link appears in this email, go to the blog to view it by clicking on the blog title above. If the film stops & starts in an annoying manner, press pause (lower left double bars ||) to let it buffer and get ahead of you.  [Chuck Almdale]
