Darwin's Dino Egg Puzzle is part of the Professor Puzzle Great Minds range of unique puzzles. Finished in an antique style to give the puzzle an aged look, it is inspired by the British Naturalist Charles Darwin who formulated the theory of Evolution which stated that humans had evolved from apes. Although widely accept now, this was a controversial notion during the nineteenth century.
The aim of the puzzle is to separate the pieces and then rebuild the egg of evolution? Looks easy? Think again! It seems like a three dimensionsal jigsaw puzzle but is in fact much more challenging.
About Charles Darwin 1809 - 1882
Darwin initially 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; where organisms best adapted to their environment tend to survive and pass on beneficial genetic traits to offspring. He went on the publish his findings in the famous book titled, On The Origin of Species in 1859. He went on to publish The Descent of Man and Selection in Relation to Sex in 1871, which revealed that humans evolved from apes. Although generally accepted now, his theories were very controversial at that time.
