Adult class -- The Lives and Times of Triassic Amphibians
Picture a ten-foot-long salamander that has fangs and weighs nearly a ton. Amphibians have not always been the toads, frogs, and newts with which we are familiar. During the Triassic of New Mexico and around the world, they often reached heroic proportions and were major players in the local ecosystems.

We will take a look at several populations of these animals that NMMNHS scientists have studied; some from Europe or Africa, and some from within an hour's drive of Albuquerque. We will attempt to answer questions regarding their lifestyle, environment, and behaviors. People often ask, "How do you know all that from a pile of dead bones"  after this class, you will understand how we know what we know about these fascinating animals. There will be touch specimens for the participants, and a tour of exhibits, the Paleo Prep Lab, and Museum Collections.
