     Darwin Loves You!  

[Sung to the tune of My Favorite Things]

Trilobite, burrows, and Cephalopoda,
Corals and worms and lamellibranchiata,
Echinoderm skeletons made out of rings -
These are a few of my favorite things.
Asteroid impact and classification,
Isotope dating and bioturbation;
In the Triassic the birds got their wings -
These are a few of my favorite things.
When the clam bites, when the shells sink,
When I'm feeling sad,
I simply remember that most are extinct
And then I don't feel so bad.
Darwin, Lamarck and genetic mutation,
Gradual changes and quick punctuation;
DNA bases all bound up in strings -
These are a few of my favorite things.
Protista and Ediacara fauna,
Eukaryota, Pangaea, Gondwana;
Vema, a monoplacophoan, clings -
These are a few of my favorite things.
When the sharks bite, when the polyps sting,
When I'm feeling sad,
I simply remember that most are extinct
These are a few of my favorite things.

Pick one up for a friend!

You've seen these fishes one -- but they seem too scarce! Be "one up" on the Chrustians! Get one TODAY :)  
[A friend of mine got one, and the next day he had his taillight bashed in. I got one, but nothing bad has yet happened.]
