Sea Monsters Unearthed: Life in Angola’s Ancient Seas

Saturday, May 14, 2022

Renowned SMU paleontologist, Louis Jacobs, brings ancient seas to life.

Saturday, May 14 at 11:00 a.m.

Ages 18 and Up

After the South Atlantic Ocean basin formed 120 million years ago, mosasaurs, plesiosaurs, and sea turtles moved in and thrived along Africa’s southwest coast. Project PaleoAngola scientists have uncovered the fossils of these real-life sea monsters, shedding light on this period in Earth’s history—and on ocean ecosystems today. SMU Professor Emeritus of Earth Sciences, Louis Jacobs, discusses this work, exhibited at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, and how their multinational team of scientists has advanced our understanding of Angola’s rich fossil history.

Registration opens Thursday, April 14. Seating is limited.
