Mythic (fossil) Creatures
The "Mythic Creatures" exhibit opens today at the American Museum of
Natural History in New York. Curated by Mark Norell and Richard
Ellis, the show presents fabulous mythic creatures of Sea, Land, and
Sky, from around the world.
The Land section features several fossil-related creatures, such as
the Griffin and the Cyclops.
There is an interactive game based on my notorious re-arrangement of
a mammoth into a bipedal giant, and videos about Land, Sea, and Sky
monsters. The show will travel to museums Atlanta, Chicago, Canada,
Looks like a cool show! I'm delighted that they included fossil-
related creatures, a new aspect of geomythology that many of you on
the dinosaur and vrtpaleo lists have helped come to light.
