Philippine fossil discoveries recorded by the National Museum of the Philippines have been released at the start of the new year in an e-book that can be downloaded for free by Filipino readers and history enthusiasts everywhere.
The National Museum is offering the free publication “Fossils: Records of Prehistoric Life in the Philippines” as a treat for anybody interested in learning more about the national fossil collections exhibited at the museum.
The book aims to introduce people to various fossil discoveries in the Philippines as represented by the specimens from the National Geological and Paleontological Collections housed at the National Museum of Natural History.
It is written by Maileen P. Rondal, Jaan Ruy Conrad P. Nogot, Abigael L. Castro, Yloisa C. Magtalas, and Jiles Arvin A. Vergara, and edited by Ana Maria Theresa P. Labrador.
Fossils described in the book include various prehistoric animals and giants, from megalodons to elephants, and more.
“Fossils, Records of Prehistoric Life in the Philippines introduces you to some of the amazing fossil discoveries in the Philippines. The plants and animals of our ancient past are represented by specimens from the National Paleontological Collections, arranged taxonomically,” writes Labrador.
“When you visit the National Museum of Natural History in Manila, you will see them in a more illustrative form and their stories told in a way that you can compare their present forms. Fossils are three-dimensional proof of our ancient world and helps us imagine what life may have been like before our histories were written.”
