“The Burgess Shale fossils in

British Columbia gave scientists the first glimpse into the explosion of life over 500 million years ago. Now two new fossil quarries in BC have a created a golden age for studying the evolution of the first animals – the earliest ancestors of us. The best part? The storytellers are the wildest little critters you’ve ever seen!”
