Site Visit: Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History - The Age of Reptiles Mural

I made a visit (more of a pilgrimage) to see an image that hung on the wall of my childhood room. Rudolph Zallinger’s room length mural, "The Age of Reptiles" is a time lapse snapshot of evolutionary history from the Devonian Period through the Cretaceous Period. It fills one long wall at the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History, and for me represents the wild, imaginative spirit that lies at the heart of science.
