All about Antarctica from someone who has been there once. I hope to go back to write a book with the same name as this blog.

First Tetrapods from Early Triassic Epoch Found in Antarctica
Here is an article about 245 million year old fossilized burrows made by land mammals found in Antarctica. They did not find any fossils of the animals that made the burrows. They did find some fossilized footprints and scratch marks. These burrows date to when Antarctica was still part of Pangea and are similar to ones that have been found in South Africa. They think these were probably small lizard like reptiles.
