Did you know that over 350 million years ago much of the western half of what we now know as Virginia was completely covered by ocean water? VMNH Assistant Curator of Paleontology Dr. Adam Pritchard knows this and so did Bothriolepis, an armored fish that was incredibly successful during the Devonian period and the focus of this week's episode of "Tales of Ancient Life"!
Special thanks to Carter Bank & Trust (www.cbtcares.com) and Boxley Materials Company (www.boxley.com) for helping make this episode possible!
ABOUT TALES OF ANCIENT LIFE
Our planet has an incredible story to tell and VMNH Assistant Curator of Paleontology Dr. Adam Pritchard helps share it through his original video series, "Tales of Ancient Life". Dr. Pritchard uses spectacular fossils and other scientific specimens from the museum's paleontology collections to highlight the wonders of earth's ancient past in ways that are both relevant and understandable to a wide variety of ages.
