Did you know that in the area of the Petrified Forest of Lesvos 20 million years ago used to live many animals, both small-sized and gigantic.
The research expedition of Young Paleontologists starts 20 million years ago in the area of Western Lesvos, where there was a unique subtropical forest and a lake, home to many animals. Inside and next to the great lake, before the catastrophic eruptions of the volcano of Vatousa, lived small-sized animals such as snails and fishes, lizards, hamsters, dormice (Myoxidae) and moles. A ferocious alligator and the Deinotherium also lived in the forest.
