Students will learn about the evolution of Pigs
I was trained in paleontology at the University of Alberta under paleontologist Philip J. Currie. I have worked in the education Department at the Smithsonian Natural History museum since 2019 and am still an educator there. I have been on several digs with paleontologist Paul Sereno and have been mentored by Paleontologist Thomas Holtz. I have also helped co-write paleo writer, Mark Witton, specifically on the vocalization of Cretaceous mammals, the rise of lepidopterans and non-aggressive potential relationships between Tyrannosaurus and Triceratops.
No homework will be assigned
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This class will go into the fact of how some prehistoric pigs defended themselves, so it will be described how they killed their predators.
