WOW! Would you check out the state of preservation on this crab fossil! 🦀 It lived in the Eocene, between 56 to 33.9 million years ago. It was found at the Monte Bolga lagerstätte, a site of fossils so incredible that even the organs are sometimes preserved! ​ ​📷: @calacademy

"A world of searing heat and melted ice caps": Climate model of Early Eocene is "scary finding" for Earth's future

Comment on “Revised paleoaltimetry data show low Tibetan Plateau elevation during the Eocene”. We contend that their conclusions are flawed as the result of a number of failings of both the modeling and the data comparison. cc @nchazarra  #Naukas19

Today for #FossilFriday , meet the “beast from Lake Moeris,” Moeritherium andrewsi. It lived ~35 mil yrs ago during the Eocene and may well have been semi-aquatic, roaming through the swamps of the African coast adjacent to the ancestral Mediterranean.

What’s that fossil? It’s Mene rhombeus, or the “moonfish,” which lived ~40 mil yrs ago during the Eocene'>Late Eocene. It may be related to modern carangids. Carangids first appeared in the Eocene, along w/ many other groups of reef fishes that have survived to the present.

Without rapidly reducing emissions, we’ll quickly go back to a climate similar to the Pliocene or Eocene — about 3 million and 56 million years ago, respectively. Both would have hellish consequences and likely reshape human civilization permanently.

Last night a high school student thanked me for making a video about the eocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum'>Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum, saying it helped her win an argument at a debate tournament on the topic of climate change. Her mom said they had talked about the PETM for weeks. I almost cried

A #FossilFriday  from Colorado in the form of a 34 million year old wasp of the genus Palaeovespa. The Florissant Formation where it was found is famed for its exceptional fossils of insects and plants dating to the Eocene.
