Exhibition: At the Water’s Edge – Tetrapods, at Elgin Museum

7 August @ 11:00 am - 31 October @ 3:00 pm

- Free

A new exhibition at Elgin Museum gives an opportunity to view fossils from one of the world’s oldest tetrapods, Elginerpeton pancheni. The bones of this transitional species provide crucial evidence of the evolution from fins to feet, but their significance was only recognised in the 1990s. This is the first time that the fossils have been brought together in 375 million years and they are on display for this season only.

Saturdays and Sundays only, 11am to 3pm, Elgin IV30 1EQ
