Reconstruction of the Early Eocene (52 Million-Year-Old) Fauna

Caption: This is a reconstruction of the early Eocene (52 million-year-old) fauna that inhabited the rainforest around a northern British Colombia lake. The tapiroid Heptodon drinks in the shallows, while the small proto-hedgehog Silvacola acares stalks a green lacewing (Pseudochrysopa harveyi) in the foreground.
