Science Sunday: CEPHALOPODS ARE THE NEW DINOSAURS: A Squid’s-Eye View of the History of Life

Book Cover

Before there were mammals on land, there were dinosaurs. And before there were fish in the sea, there were cephalopods - Earth’s first truly substantial animals and the ancestors of modern squid. With dozens of tentacles and formidable shells, they presided over an undersea empire for millions of years.

Join scientist and writer Danna Staaf on an epic adventure from the primordial ocean to the calamari on your dinner plate. Stay for a signing of Staaf’s new book, Squid Empire: The Rise and Fall of the Cephalopods, which was named one of the best science books of 2017 by NPR Science Friday.
