Watch paleobiologists Matthew Carrano and Advait Jukar dissect a fish and a salamander before your very eyes as they answer your questions about animals, evolution, and natural history. All four-limbed animals with backbones evolved from fishes, including us! Come learn about what it takes to live in the water, and what evolutionary changes let animals live on land. Paleontologists use modern organisms like these to help us understand how their fossil relatives would have lived millions of years in the past.
