The Age of Reptiles mural, this new edition of the Peabody's guide to Zallinger's masterwork is a compilation of earlier material and new information contributed by the staff and scientists of the Yale Peabody Museum. It includes updated descriptions and identifying illustrations of the animals and plants depicted in the mural keyed to an included fold-out full-color poster, all enhanced with highlights from the Museum's distinguished history and rich collections.

Told here as well is Rudy Zallinger's story and, in his own words, the making of The Age of Reptiles, along with Yale Sterling Professor Emeritus of the History of Art Vincent Scully's classic essay on the mural's place in the history of art.
