ICHTHYOSAURUS

 

“A deadened burst of mighty splashes and snorts reached us from afar,
as though an ichthyosaurus had been taking a bath of glitter in the great river.”

One thought on “ICHTHYOSAURUS

  1. “An evolutionary perspective of our place in the history of the earth reminds us that Homo sapiens sapiens has occupied the planet for the tiniest fraction of that planet’s four and a half thousand million years of existence. In many ways we are a biological accident, the product of countless propitious circumstances. As we peer back through the fossil record, through layer upon layer of long-extinct species, many of which thrived far longer than the human species is ever likely to do, we are reminded of our mortality as a species. There is no law that declares the human animal to be different, as seen in this broad biological perspective, from any other animal. There is no law that declares the human species to be immortal.” ~ Richard E. Leakey
