Photos by Alicia Knadler Dino Don Daily describes how each inch of a shark tooth represents about 10 feet in body length, so this fossilized shark tooth is from a specimen of at least 50 feet in length. A table of fossils is a welcome attraction to be poured over after an entertaining presentation about their origins.

Our Commitment a modern-day photograph of a hot springs pool in Yellow- stone, where such life still exists. He also shared theories of evolution, including the emergence of new life forms over the millennia, including those that became insects, fish and eventually mam- mals. The first amphibians es- caped the predators of the sep, yet had to return to wa- ter to lay their eggs, Dailey said, like the toads and sala- manders of today. Eventually some evolved into reptiles and could lay eggs outside water, some de- veloped different kinds of teeth and became mammals. He spoke in terms of mil'- lions of years ago when he told stories about dragonflies with three-foot wingspans and. sharks more than 50 feet long. He injected humor too, when talking about the fan- tasies of "Jurassic Park" and a computer model two uni- versity students created to show what modern dil nosaurs might look like if they had evolved instead of dying out. That photo created a stir, since it showed the familiar image used in the movies of a large-eyed, rather reptilian alien, or maybe it was more like the old-time science fic- tion swamp creature.
