The Museum of Arts and Sciences has invited a leading vertebrate paleontologist to shed new light on “Ziggy,” its 40-million-year-old Zygorhiza whale fossil and one of Georgia’s most valuable treasures. A public lecture is planned for February 26, 2015, at 7PM. Currently, the Museum classifies its Ziggy as genus zygorhiza, a subfamily of the dorudontinae species of ancient whales. A great deal of new scientific research has been uncovered in recent years about the dorudontinae species of ancient whales, which may impact the Museum’s educational programming. In February, the Museum will bring Dr. Mark Uhen, one of the nation’s leading vertebrate paleontologists, to Macon to review the fossil and consider the need for a reclassification of Ziggy from Zygorhiza to Dorudon serratus.
