'Rise of the Mammals' Digital Lecture

Presented by Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum at Online/Virtual Space

Sixty-six million years ago a six mile-wide asteroid slammed into Earth and caused the extinction of more than 75% of life on Earth, including the dinosaurs.

This was the single worst day for life on Earth. How and when life rebounded in the aftermath of the extinction has been shrouded in mystery due to a poor fossil record.

An extraordinary new discovery east of Colorado Springs preserves a remarkably complete fossil record with entire fossil mammals, turtles, crocodiles, and plants and paints a vivid picture of how life rebounded after Earth’s darkest hour.
