Watch films “Your Inner Fish” and “Your Inner Reptile.”
Answer the questions below. Answers can be brief but should be specific for credit. You can
write in this document and upload to Turnitin.
1. What are some of the challenges faced by a field paleontologist? (list several)







High cost of travelling to archeology sites across the world for the research
Commercialization of fossils by governments and other authorities across the globe.
Working and researching for many years with very little to show.
Difficulties in finding archeological sites of the right age.
rocks of the right type to preserve high quality fossils
and rocks that are exposed on the surface

2. Who is Dr. Neil Shubin?
Dr. Neil Shubin is a professor of Organismal Biology and Anatomy at the University of Chicago
and paleontologist and evolutionary biologist who has conducted landmark research on
evolutionary origin of anatomical features of animals. He has also written several science books
such as The Universe within and Your Inner Fish.
3. What do fossils around the world reveal?
Fossils document the existence of some of the now-extinct past species and provide a link
between the past and present-day species by revealing common features between the past and
present-day species. The fossils reveal that the existing living species underwent evolution
(gradual change over time to become) to become what they are today.
4. What did Sir Richard Owen discover/describe?
He discovered the name dinosaur from fossils that had been unearthed by Mantell and named
numerous dinosaurs including Cetiosaurus, Massospondylus, Polacanthus and Scelidosaurus.
5. What was Darwin's explanation?
Darwin explains that species changes over time to give rise to new species that share a common
ancestor through evolution. Darwin explained that evolution takes place through natural selection
where organisms with heritable traits that favor survival reproduce and leave more offspring than
their peers with weaker traits, thus causing the traits to increase in numbers over generations.
6. Rocks of what age were most likely to contain Tetrapod fossils?
360 million years old rocks are most likely to contain Tetrapod fossils
7. What did Dr. Jenny Clack find in Greenland, and what was significant about her
discovery?

She discovered 370 years old fossil of the creature Acanthostega, which was similar to
salamander, with front legs and paddles in the back. The discovery was significant because it
how confirmed that limbs evolved and how vertebrates made the transition from sea to land,
from animals with fins to animals with legs
8. How much older were the rocks that had not been studied in the Canadian Arctic?
10 million years older
9. What are 4 similar features of a fish embryo and ...
