Fishes that walk, fishes that breathe air, fishes that look like and are monsters from the deep. These and many more strange creatures swim through this book, John A. Longs richly illustrated tour of the past 500 million years. Long has updated his classic work with illustrations of recent fossil discoveries and new interpretations based on genetic analyses. This book combines scientific expertise with entertaining stories about Long’s own excursions, which span the oceans and continents. The book includes photographs of fossils from around the world, as well as dramatic colour illustrations depicting what the fish may have actually looked like.
