Henry Ermer grew up in Brooklyn, New York, where he explored nature vicariously through zoological textbooks and the memoirs of biologists. As an undergraduate at Brooklyn College he works in Dr. Chester's mammalian evolutionary morphology lab where he explores a former world through the fossils of nontherian mammals. Outside of paleontology, Henry enjoys campy horror movies and a healthy obsession with polychaete worms. He is looking forward to investigating the mammalian fauna before and after the End Cretaceous event, with special interest in multituberculates. Henry is also looking forward to hiking through Montana and the Dakotas as well as seeing some wild buffalo. He's proud to say that he signed the now successful petition to make Wild Buffalo the national mammal!
