Visit Cleveland Museum of Natural History to see “pop-up” exhibit highlighting work by CWRU faculty member Darin Croft

A small “pop-up” exhibit just opened at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History titled “Mammal Mysteries of South America”. It highlights the NSF-sponsored research of CWRU faculty member Darin Croft, an expert in extinct South American mammals.

The exhibit includes a case of 13 million-year-old fossils from Bolivia, many of which represent new species, and many reconstructions of extinct mammals from Croft’s 2016 book, Horned Armadillos and Rafting Monkeys: The Fascinating Fossil Mammals of South America (by paleoartist Velizar Simeonovski).

The exhibit will run through the end of the summer.
