Galapagos Admiralty map by Fitzroy Beagle Featured Top Picks Print

Galapagos Admiralty map by Fitzroy Beagle

Admiralty map of Galapagos 1845 resulting from Captain Robert Fitzroy's Beagle charts, overlain with a portion of a letter written by Fitzroy. Robert Fitzroy (b. 5 July 1805- d. 30 April 1865) was famous as the captain of HMS Beagle who, requiring a Gentleman's companion to avert the risk of depression and suicide, took the young Charles Darwin on his voyage. Darwin respected the captain while at the same time fearing Fitzroy would always be his own worst enemy. After his trip Darwin referred to the Galapagos (and also South American megafauna fossils) as being the origin of all his views. Fitzroy is also remembered for his contributions to meteorology (he pioneered weather forecasting) and as a Governor of New Zealand from 1843-1845. Fitzroy committed suicide at 59, but the charts he produced continued to be used up to the second World War

Tyrannosaurus rex hunting

Tyrannosaurus rex hunting. Computer artwork of a Tyrannosaurus rex dinosaur hunting an Ornithomimus dinosaur. T. rex was among the largest carnivorous dinosaurs. It was about 6 metres tall and weighed about 7 tonnes. T. rex lived in North America and Asia during the late Cretaceous period, between 85 and 65 million years ago. The head is heavily built and has the sharp teeth of a predator. T. rex is thought to have scavenged as well as hunted for food. The Ornithomimus dinosaur was about 6 metres long and 2 metres tall. It was an omnivore. It was fast and agile, thought to have been capable of speeds of up to 70 kilometres per hour. It lived from 76-65 million years ago
