Tetrapod Trackway, Valentia Island, Kerry, Ireland
Etching with aquatint
24 x 30cm

This small and arguably visually underwhelming track of fossilised footprints reveals the presence of a tetrapod - the first creature to emerge from the sea onto the land, some 350 million years ago. They were only discovered in 1993.
