Organized by the American Museum of Natural History in collaboration with, among other institutions, the Canadian Museum of Nature, Ottawa, Ontario, Extreme Mammals features the biggest, smallest, most amazing, and generally the weirdest mammals to ever swim, fly, or walk the face of this earth. Included will be an exciting `missing-link` carnivore, Puijila darwini, which recently made headlines around the world after the publication of an article in the journal Nature by Canadian scientist Dr. Natalia Rybczynski. Puijila is a scientific breakthrough in the understanding of the land-to-sea transition of pinnipeds, the group that today includes the walrus, seals, and sea lions.
