Valdosta State University's Virtual Museum of Fossils offers information on animals since the Precambrian era. The website offers two navigation options. In the Find an Animal section, users can view fossils by clicking on different areas of the geologic timescales for Prokaryotes, Eukaryotes, Invertebrates, and Vertebrates. In the Choose a Time section, students can learn about the major characteristics of each era. For each period, this link also offers a map of the world, the characteristics of the landscape at the time, and pictures of fossils of the animals that lived during the period. While the Take a Tour link is still under construction, the abundance of information covering the geologic past makes the site worth the visit.
