Darwin's Dino Egg puzzle

    SKU: cmcn439420

    £12.99 Members' price *


    Finished in an antique style, this miniature-sized mind puzzle is based on Darwin's theory of evolution and makes a great gift idea. The aim of the puzzle is to separate the pieces and then rebuild the egg of evolution- like a three dimensional jigsaw puzzle, only more challenging.

    More about Darwin

    Charles Darwin (1809 - 1882) studied to be a clergyman but became more interested in natural history. In 1831 he set off in a naval ship (HMS Beagle) to study geology, biology and natural history in South America, including the Galapagos Islands.

    Here he studied animal and plant life and devised his famous theory of natural selection - that all species evolve from other species. This theory is set out in his definitive work, On the Origins of Species, published in 1859. In 1871 he published a further work The Descent of Man and Selection in Relation to Sex. This showed how humans evolved from apes. Although generally accepted now, his theories were very controversial at that time.
