“South America’s Marvelous Mammals”

The Siegal Lifelong Learning Program will offer a remote lecture with Darin Croft, a paleomammalogist and professor of anatomy. Titled “South America’s Marvelous Mammals,” the event will be held Monday, Sept. 14, from noon to 1 p.m. 

South America boasts more endemic mammal families than any other continent and was home to an even greater number during the last Ice Age, a mere 12,000 years ago. Further back in time, none of the continent’s mammals were found anywhere else. This presentation will review many of the weird and wonderful mammal groups that have called South America home and provide a paleontological perspective on the development of its modern fauna.

Registration is required and costs $5 for members of the Siegal Lifelong Learning Program, and $10 for non-members. Register for the event.
