For hundreds of years, many people believed that all creatures were created at the same time, and that all of them were still around.
Neither of these ideas turned out to be true. For example, a mammoth may look like a modern elephant, but it isn’t one. Scientist Georges Cuvier proved that in the 1790s, when he compared fossil mammoths with elephants alive today. Mammoths were not only different from elephants — they had “gone extinct.” They had died out and vanished from the Earth.
The idea that some animals had become extinct was confirmed when people found strange fossils totally unlike any living animals. One fossil hunter was a young English girl named Mary Anning. Around 1810, she discovered the first complete specimen of an extinct ichthyosaur — a reptile with a sharklike body streamlined for life in the sea. Anning went on to find other important fossils. She was one of the great fossil hunters of all time.
The fossils discovered by Anning and others were a real shock to people. During very ancient times, Earth was home to many kinds of animals that had since gone extinct. Fossils provided rock solid evidence that life was different in the past. But how far in the past? And what sorts of changes had occurred in living things during Earth’s long history?
