Adopt a Tile Halloween Special
"Treat" yourself to a "spooky" tile from our beautiful Rock of Ages, Sands of Time mural by Barbara Page. Tile #33 details two skulls of Aegyptopithecus zeuxis, commonly known as the dawn ape. But scientists today know that Aegyptopithecus was actually a gibbon-sized monkey, closely related to the ancient ancestor of today’s Old World Monkeys and our own primate group, the apes. Looking at the skull of Aegyptopithecus and its eerie form, it’s easy to imagine the great howl of this beast echoing through the moonlit forests of Egypt some 33 million years ago!
The Museum of the Earth celebrates its 10th Anniversary in 2013 and your gift will help to ensure that the Museum continues to provide Earth science educational programs and exhibits for another 10 years.
By adopting the Aegyptopithecus zeuxis tile you will not only be putting your name or a loved one’s name on a monumental part of Earth’s history, but have the benefit of knowing that you contributed to an organization dedicated to educating the public on Earth’s past, present, and future.
