See what the world was like when eurypterids (sea scorpions) and trilobites lived hundreds of millions of years ago. View fossil plants and invertebrate animals from the bottom of ancient oceans. Stroll by the swamp forests that formed the world’s coal, check out the monstrous meat-cleaver jaws of Dunkleosteus terrelli, the fossil fish found in the shale around Cleveland, then meet some of our dinosaurs.
“Happy,” the 70-foot-long Haplocanthosaurus delfsi, is the oldest sauropod on exhibit anywhere. Allosaurus is a 40-foot-long, 15-foot-tall meat eater that lived about 160 million years ago. The skull of Nanotyrannus lancensis is the world’s only specimen of this small cousin of T. rex.
At the entrance to a display detailing human evolution stands a reconstructed skeleton of 3.2 million-year-old “Lucy,” discovered in 1974 by a Museum curator and determined to be a new species of human ancestor.
Among the much younger inhabitants of Kirtland Hall are Smilodon, a sabertoothed cat from California’s La Brea tar pits; a mammoth; and the Johnstown Mastodon, discovered in Ohio.
