Made possible with a grant from the Weston Loan Programme with Art Fund, our temporary exhibition 'At the Water’s Edge' brings together fossils from an animal showing some of the earliest adaptations necessary for life to move out of water and onto land. This important evolutionary step led to the further development of tetrapods (four-limbed creatures), including ourselves.
At up to 1.5 metres long, Elginerpeton was a top predator in the Devonian ‘fish-eat-fish’ world; this exhibition is the first time in 375 million years that these fragments will have been brought together since they were washed down the large inland river that crossed the area at the time. ‘At the Water’s Edge’ complements our permanent displays of fossil fish and reptiles from the local area so come and explore Moray’s important geological past.
