About this book

Language: English

In Nepal some 26 different types of prehistoric mammals are known to have existed, as evidenced by the discovery of fossilized body parts in different parts of the country by various palaeontologists. The area of present-day Nepal used to be the Tethys Sea, which extended along the full length of the Asian continent in the late Palaeozoic era before the separate Indian plate tectonically collided with the Eurasian plate. The fossil findings of plants and animals from Nepal are best understood in the context of the geologic history of the Himalayas and in close proximity areas.

The Natural History Museum, Swayambhu has an extensive collection of fossilized animal body parts that were discovered from various parts of Nepal in the last few decades. This books contains chapters on tectonic formation of Nepal, the geologic time table, the Cenozoic era, the origin and evolution of mammals, and 26 ancient mammals that were found in the ancient lands of Nepal.
