Genius!

Intellect in the Bath area has always been high. On 31st December 1780 Edmund Rack commented, "this institution promises much rational improvement and instruction; and has a much more favourable beginning than the Royal Society in London had 100 years ago - there being only 5 members for more than two years: and those 5 not superior in learning and genius to most of our members". 11 Members went on to become Fellows of the Royal Society!

This reconstruction assumed it leapt like a frog and was based only on fragments of jaw and teeth.
