This isn’t a book, but I wanted to point it out anyway.
I’ve been watching a cool show on National Geographic TV. Â It’s called Morphed, and it’s all about evolution. There are three episodes so far. I’m not sure if it’s going to be a longer series or not, but these three are worth seeing:
- When Whales had Legs
- From Dinosaur to Turkey
- Before They were Bears
If you’re familiar with evolution, there’s probably not much new here. But it’s all explained in an easy-to-understand format with good graphics and animations. And two of the three episodes are about my favorite animals: dinosaurs and whales. All I could think of after watching these is, “Anyone who thinks there are no ‘transitional fossils’ and who doesn’t believe in evolution is clearly wearing blinders.” That’s just how I always felt watching the hippos at the San Diego Zoo, too.Â
Check out the website. There are some great videos and interactive animations. There are links to other shows about evolution, too.
