So interesting, I never knew Marine Reptiles of the Mesozoic could be to captivating.

It helped me to really understand marine reptiles, unlike many introductory science books that only lists the names of those reptiles.

Ancient Marine Reptiles is extremely in-depth - there is A LOT to learn here, from various animals to evolution, classification and trees.

recommend this course in 4 reviews

Definitely recommend this course to anyone even slightly interested in palaeontology and it really makes me regret my choice of studies.

I cannot recommend this course enough.

I highly, highly recommend this course and any others from the University of Alberta - they are some of the best courses I've ever taken.

While it's clear that a lot of time was spent filming and creating the course material, I still would not recommend this course.
