Animations of Burgess Shale Fauna


A YouTube animation of the Burgess Shale fauna.


This video focusses on Anomalocaris, trilobites, and the proto-chordate Pikaia. The commentary is in Spanish (so Spanish-speakers are in luck). The animation is excellent. Of particular note is the section at the end of the video theorizing the progression from Pikaia to fish with true backbones.
