    10. Patagotitan
    In 2012, a farmer came across a stone littered with the remains of all kinds of dinosaurs. Some of the fossilized bones in particular, were determined to belong to a massive herbivore. This new species is arguably the most massive dinosaur ever discovered!! Now known as the Patagotitan mayorum, this titanosaur was 122 feet (37 m) long, nearly 20 feet high (6 m) at the shoulder, and weighed over 70 tons.

    9. Megalosaurus
    The Megalosaurus was found in England in 1676, where a fragmentary bone was discovered in a limestone quarry in Oxfordshire. This find was one of the first dinosaurs ever discovered!! The first scientists to examine the bone thought it might have come from a Roman war elephant, or even from a giant human like those mentioned in the Bible. The fragment was the end of a femur, but because of its shape, it was labeled “Scrotum humanum”. The name stuck until 1827, when it was given its proper name.

    8. Tyrannosaurus Rex
    What listing of huge fossils would be complete without the king of the dinosaurs? It was one of the largest predators ever, with just its skull measuring over five feet long! It’s estimated that T. rex had the greatest bite force in history, at about 8000 pounds of pressure – about the weight of three small cars! Now scientists believe that adult t-rexes could have been covered in feathers.

    7. Giganotosaurus
    Its name is often mispronounced as “giganto-saurus,” a name that would be appropriate for its immense size, but that’s actually the name of another dinosaur. Giganotosaurus’ name is really Greek for “great Southern lizard.” Found in Argentina, this beast lived during the Late Cretaceous period, about 97 million years ago. It was larger than a T-rex, estimated to be about 45 feet long (13.7 m) and tipping the scales at 15 tons. That’s a several tons heavier and five feet longer than T. rex!

    6. Archaeopteryx
    The Archaeopteryx is a transitional species between dinosaurs and birds. It is often considered the first bird. This remarkable creature was first found in southern Germany in 1860. It’s not very large – only about the size of a raven – but the quality that makes it “big” is its plumage. Like birds, the Archaeopteryx had flight feathers, and these have been beautifully preserved in the fossil record. In fact, eleven separate specimens have been discovered, all of them with their feathers clearly shown.

    5. Diplodocus
    First discovered in 1877 in Colorado, Diplodocus was a four-footed, herbivorous giant. It lived in North America during the Jurassic period, about 155 million years ago. A long-necked, long-tailed creature, the Diplodocus measured about 108 feet (33 m) long and weighed about 17.6 tons (10 to 16 metric tons).

    4. Mosasaurus
    Massive monsters weren’t exclusively found on land. These ancient marine reptiles were not dinosaurs and are believed to be one of the most fearsome predators to live in the ocean. The Mosasaurus could reach lengths of up to 56 feet (17 m) and weigh up to 30,000 pounds (13,607 kg). Paleontologists think that Mosasaurus had tail flukes similar to sharks, and like sharks, it probably could cruise along at a pretty fast speed!

    3. Iguanodon
    The Iguanodon, was a four-legged herbivore that lived during the Jurassic period to the Cretaceous. When a fossil was first obtained by an English doctor in 1825, it was just a gigantic tooth that the doctor called “Iguanodon”, meaning “iguana tooth”. Over the years many different dinosaurs were labelled as iguanodons so it got kind of confusing and it was hard to find big skeletons and artists started to create their own beasts based on bits and pieces of information.

    2. Hadrosaurus
    Their name translates to “bulky lizard,” but we know them better as duck-billed dinosaurs. These creatures were the most common dinosaurs, found all across Europe, North America and Asia during the late Cretaceous period about 80 million years ago.
    Hadrosaurs were herbivores, and they probably lived near water. They ran on two legs and had a stiff tail that helped them balance.

    1. Yutyrannus
    This dinosaur was a distant cousin of the T-Rex and lived in the Cretaceous period. Discovered in northeastern China, these guys were big, scary, and fluffy!!

  • Rarest Discovery of 2020 Found Fossil Hunting in Florida

    9:50

    In many years Fossil Hunting in Florida, this may be the largest extinct Mastodon Tooth I have ever discovered. Mastodons were one of Florida’s largest Ice Age animals and are a prized find by even seasoned fossil hunters. Teeth this large are extremely rare and are normally broken into many pieces before ever being recovered. Mastodons were browsers unlike Mammoths (who grazed for their food) because of this they have distinct “lophodont” teeth just like us. This led scientists to realize it was the first extinct animal in the late 18th century. This tooth will make a fine addition to the Digging Science Fossil Collection and another fossil saved from the treasure guarding alligators of Florida's swamps. All fossils collected under Permit issued by the Florida Museum of Natural History.

    Through exploring, fossil hunting, and arrowhead collecting, we can make a physical connection to the history around us. We are passionate about that connection and want to share it with others. If you value this content, consider supporting us on Patreon so we can help others “dig science.”


    We plan on hunting for a diversity of fossils all throughout the US this year with other fossil hunters such as Paleocris, Wildkyle, Ancient Artworks, Shark Teeth and Fossils and Bone Valley Collections. We hope to find beautiful Megalodon teeth, gems and minerals, great white shark teeth, artifacts, arrowheads, and megafauna creatures like mammoths and mastodons. We will also include videos on how to find shark teeth and explore discussions on some of our favorite topics in paleontology, archaeology, and geology!

  • Man finds 12-million-year-old fossil then spends 15 hours to expose crab hidden in stone

    2:40

    This timelapse footage shows an amateur palaeontologist uncovering an ancient crab fossil that he says is 12-million-years-old.

    The fossil, found on beach in Christchurch, is encased in rock and Morne (Mamlambo on YouTube) carefully picks it away revealing the crab's claws and shell.

    Morne told Newsflare: I found a fossil crab on a beach in New Zealand and then used an air scribe to remove the rock to show the fossil crab. It took about 10 hours and I made a timelapse of it.

    It [the fossil] is dated by the age of the rock it is found in, Miocene era in this case. The rock layers have been dated by some geologists using a variety of techniques, I use that information to date it. It isn't very specific, rather a range.

    The species is a Tumidocarcinus Giganteus. Found in New Zealand.

    10. Water on Europa
    Because of its icy exterior, many people have long thought that Jupiter’s moon Europa could be a possible home to alien life. Jupiter has a lot of moons, 79 to be exact, but what we have discovered about Europa makes it a very viable candidate in our search for life in space.

    9. Biggest Coffin Find In A Century
    Back on Earth, archaeologists recently discovered 30 ancient Egyptian coffins in the Asasif necropolis of ancient Thebes, the capital of ancient Egypt. Incredibly, this discovery was found by complete chance after extensive digging in the present day city of Luxor. Inside of these sarcophagi were mummies that were amazingly preserved.

    8. Chewing Gum
    How long does it take humans to digest chewing gum? Well, it probably depends on what kind of gum it is. The old wives tale says that if you swallow your gum it will stay in your body for 7 years or something like that, right?

    7. Kepler 22-b
    NASA’s Kepler mission in 2011 confirmed the first planet in the “habitable zone”, also known as the ‘Goldilocks’ zone, the perfect distance from a star to have just the right temperature to be able to have liquid water, and therefore, possibly support life!

    6. Giant Squid
    The giant squid is one of the most elusive animals on the planet. They are rarely seen near the surface of our oceans; they live deep underwater around 3,300 feet below but a research group in the Gulf of Mexico hit the jackpot in 2019!

    5. Quantum Computing
    We’ve looked to the skies, to the sea, but how about into your computer? Recent advances in quantum computing mean that, in the near future, you might be working with far more powerful technology.

    4. Dinosaur Fossil Egg
    Our child-like enchantment with dinosaurs often extends into adulthood. So, just imagine how excited 10 year old Zhang Yangzhe must have been when he discovered a fossilized dinosaur egg while playing out near the Dong River in Héyuán, China, now famous for its fossilized dinosaur remains.

    3. ’Oumuamua
    In 2017, researchers in Hawaii got quite the shock when they saw something strange flying through the solar system! The strange object was moving too fast to be gravitationally bound by the Sun and was already traveling back into the depths of space when it was discovered.

    2. Zealandia
    Not sure if this discovery got a lot of attention but In 2017, geologists made an astounding announcement; there is an entire continent, which they named Zealandia, hidden beneath the Pacific ocean. Some geologists even think that it should be counted as an official continent alongside the standard geological seven.

    1. Oldest Human-Like Skull
    In February 2016, archaeologist Yohannes Halie-Selassie and his team were exploring the northern Ethiopian desert when they made a remarkable discovery; a nearly complete hominin skull, which they determined to be around 3.8 million years old. It was actually found by accident in a goat pen!!

  • RAREST Prehistoric Animals That Existed Long Ago!

    10:41

    Check out the RAREST Prehistoric Animals That Existed Long Ago! From the biggest extinct creatures to the rarest beasts that roamed the planet, this top 10 list of amazing animals that went extinct will surprise you!

    10. Longisquama
    Longisquama lived between 240 and 230 million years ago, and its discovery has cast doubt over the theory that all birds have descended from dinosaurs. They existed more than 80 million years before the first known feathered dinos but, as you can see, they clearly had feather-like structures… or did they?

    9. Glyptodon
    Glyptodons lived in North and South America during the last Ice Age… and if they look familiar, that’s because they were the ancestors to modern armadillos- just a lot, lot bigger. They were covered from head to tail in a thick casing of protective armor made up of more than 1000 bony plates, and their heads and armored tails protruded from within the main body shell. Before you think Glyptodons were cute little creatures… they could grow to be the size of a small car, and weigh as much as a tonne!

    8. Hallucigenia
    The Hallucigenia is one of the most bizarre animals to have ever lived. This tiny sea creature lived around 500 million years ago, and since the discovery of the first fossil more than 100 years ago, it has baffled researchers. Growing to less than an inch long, and thinner than a strand of hair, they had pairs of huge spines on one side of their body and stick-like claws on the other side. The strange thing, though, was that of all the specimens discovered, none seemed to have a head.

    7. Beelzebufo ampinga
    The Beelzebufo ampinga, commonly called the ‘devil frog’, is thought to have been the largest species of frog to have ever lived. They were common across Madagascar between 70 and 65 million years ago, and grew to up to 16 inches long, and 10 pounds in weight, and had a large cranial shield for protection.

    6. Estemmenosuchus
    The Estemmenosuchus, which means ‘Crowned Crocodile’ was a type of mammal-like reptile, called a therapsid, that lived between 268 and 266 million years ago. Evidence of 2 different species have been found, both of which lived near Perm, in Russia and had very slight differences from each other. They grew to up to 10 feet long and had massive skulls that were as much as 26 inches in length.

    5. Madtsoia
    There are a number of examples of prehistoric animals being much larger than their counterparts that exist today, and there’s no better example of this than the Madtsoia… a giant species of snake. Individual vertebrae have been found that were 1.8 cm long (0.72 inches) and 4.3 cm tall (1.71 inches), which would suggest the entire animal could have been as much as 4.9m (16 feet) in length, with speculation being that there could have been ones as long as 8 meters (26 feet).

    4. The Siberian Unicorn
    The Siberian Unicorn, long thought to be the true inspiration behind stories of unicorns, was actually a type of rhinoceros that lived on the grasslands of Eurasia until about 39,000 years ago. Its proper name, Elasmotherium, means ‘thin plate beast', and they grew to up to 16 feet long, and weighed as much as 5 tons.

    3. Epicyon
    The Epicyon is one of the largest prehistoric dogs known to have lived and roamed the plains of North America between 15 and 5 million years ago. The name means ‘more than a dog'… which makes sense, because they could grow to 1.5 m (5 feet) long, and weigh more than 136 kg (300 pounds). They belonged to the same group as wolves and hyenas and had such powerful jaws and teeth that their heads looked more like a cat's than a modern dog's.

    2. Machimosaurus Rex
    The waters of prehistoric oceans and lakes were treacherous places to be, and the Machimosaurus Rex was one of the deadliest predators to have ever lived. As far as we know, they were the largest sea dwelling crocodiles ever to have lived- terrorizing the waters near modern-day Tunisia around 130 million years ago.

    1. Paraceratherium
    The Paraceratherium was an absolutely huge species of hornless Rhinoceros that lived across China, India, Kazakhstan, and Pakistan around 30 million years ago. They were the largest terrestrial mammals ever known to exist… and grew to 15.7 feet tall, 24.3 feet long, and weighed as much as 20 tonnes.

  • 10 Mind-Blowing Ancient Fossil Discoveries

    3:26

    Here are 10 extraordinary ancient animal fossils.

    Many creatures of days long passed bear striking resemblances to their contemporary counterparts, but some were truly unique to their time.

    Here are 10 extraordinary and recently discovered ancient animal fossils.
    Number 10. Pig-Nosed Turtle. From the neck down, the roughly 75-million-year-old river dweller looks quite a bit like those we know and love today. The head is a different story, as the animal has a decidedly porcine snout. Researchers say among the turtles they have studied, the feature is a first. 
    Number 9. Pregnant Horse Predecessor. Paleontologists in Germany were stunned to find a remarkably well-preserved unborn foal still inside a mother’s womb. Estimated to be about 48 million years old, the specimen is the best kept and oldest of the sort on record. 
    Number 8. Giant Killer Lizard. Finding fossils of fierce reptiles is nothing new, but the tale told by this discovery has an especially scary twist. Researchers aged the remains and determined the predatory creature was roaming Australia at the same time humans were. 
    Number 7. Coelacanth Lung. While this fish still lives deep in water today, the swimmer has been categorized as a ‘living fossil’ as the species goes back at least 400 million years. One studied not long ago was found to have a defunct lung, leading researchers to believe the aquatic animals once used the organ to breathe. 
    Number 6. Four-Legged Snake. The scientific community generally believes today’s slithering reptiles evolved from lizards, but there is a great deal of uncertainty about the specifics of the transition. Clearly, this find offers a rare opportunity to gain insights.  One expert admits news of this discovery seemed, “just too good to be true.”
    Number 5. Fossil-Filled Sea Urchin. Thanks to advanced imaging, an international team was able to get a peek inside the 10-million-year-old specimen. To their surprise and delight, they found evidence of a great number of bivalves inside. The holes made by the tiny, shelled creatures provided enough information for the scientists to identify them as distant ancestors of similar animals living today. 
    Number 4. Winged Dragon. Velociraptors may get all the great movie roles, but one of the flying menace’s predecessors was possibly every bit as vicious. Though the 125-million-year-old bird-like creature couldn’t fly, the wings it sported may have given the over 6-foot tall killer other advantages. 
    Number 3. Japanese T-Rex Teeth. Apparently, the area now known as Japan didn’t escape the wrath of giant dinosaurs after all. Two very large tyrannosaurus teeth were found in Nagasaki Prefecture, indicating that the smaller variety known to roam the landscape had some enormous and menacing company.  
    Number 2. Beach-Strolling Dinos. Footprints of what may have been a parent and baby were found in Germany. Based on patterns of the 142-million-year-old steps, researchers say the dinosaur duo was travelling on wet sand. Also evident is the difficulty the little one had keeping up with the adult’s pace. 
    Number 1. Michigan Mammoth. A farmer found evidence of the wooly creature’s bones out in a wheat field and generously allowed paleontologists from the University of Michigan to come dig some up. Moving the hefty remains around required large machinery and a flatbed trailer. 
    Which fossil discovery do you find most extraordinary?

    11. New Dinosaur Species
    Earlier this year, scientists announced that they finally have identified some dinosaur remains that were originally discovered in northeastern Utah back in 1990. Turns out it was a new species of Allosaurus and the largest Allosaurus fossils ever discovered in the state.

    10. Stockholm Shipwreck
    In 2019, archaeologists unearthed the remains of a 16th-century shipwreck beneath Kungsträdgården park in Stockholm, Sweden. Remnants of a wooden hull were discovered beneath a courtyard, where the vessel spent nearly four centuries unnoticed, right beneath people’s feet.

    9. 120,000-Year-Old Footprints
    Seven well-preserved human footprints dating back 120,000 years were recently identified in Saudi Arabia, serving as the region’s oldest known evidence of human habitation. Discovered along what was once the shore of an ancient freshwater lake, called Alanthar, in what is now the western Nefud Desert, the fossilized prints belong to two or three different individuals, who likely stopped at the lake for drinking water so long ago.

    8. Maya Slave Ship
    In September of this year, archaeologists with Mexico’s National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) identified a submerged vessel off the Yucatan Peninsula as the first known slave ship that transported Mayans.

    7. Neolithic House
    In August of this year, archaeologists performing routine excavations in anticipation of two road construction projects unearthed the foundations of a Neolithic house in Cork, Ireland. Dating back an estimated 5,700 years, the structure likely belonged to a family from one of the earliest farming communities in the country’s region.

    6. Big Void
    Built for the Pharaoh Khufu over a 20-year span, the Great Pyramid of Giza is both the oldest and largest of the site’s monuments. Khufu’s body has never been recovered, and what lies within the 4,500-year-old structure remains largely a mystery to archaeologists.

    5. Phoenician Wine Press
    Archaeologists announced the discovery of a 2,700-year-old wine press at Tell el-Burak, a Phoenician site in modern-day Lebanon, in a recently-published study in the journal Antiquity.

    4. 48,000-Year-Old Tooth
    Evidence of one of northern Italy’s last Neanderthals recently appeared in the form of a 48,000-year-old milk tooth, discovered in the country’s Veneto region. The small upper canine belonged to a child between 11 and 12 years old, and is detailed in a newly-published study in the Journal of Human Evolution.

    3. Oldest Church In The Holy Land
    Situated roughly 56 miles (91 km) outside Jerusalem, Megiddo, one of Israel’s oldest and holiest cities, is home to the oldest known church in the Holy Land. Once considered one of the Kingdom of Israel’s royal cities, Megiddo rose to prominence during the Bronze Age, but very little remains of it today.

    2. Ancient Beach Forest
    Over the past decade, extreme weather has exposed portions of an ancient, 4,500-year-old beach forest in the U.K. When Storm Francis hit Wales this year, even more of the forest was unburied from the sand and sediment that preserved it for several millennia.

    1. Prehistoric Extinct Society
    A recently published study by experts at the University College London (UCL) revealed how Homo heidelbergensis, an extinct relative of modern humans, lived day-to-day in the ancient world, around 480,000 years ago. Using thousands of artifacts, the team recreated the daily activities of a community of 30 to 40 hominids over an eight-hour period.

  • Michael Shermer with Rebecca Wragg Sykes — Kindred: Neanderthal Life, Love, Death and Art

    1:39:16

    Listen to the Science Salon Podcast # 140 (audio-only):


    The common narrative of Neanderthals is that they were a group of dullard losers whose extinction 40,000 years ago was due to smarter competition and a little of interbreeding with our own forebears. Likening someone to a Neanderthal was and, most likely, still is a top-rate anthropological insult. But, in the past few decades, Neanderthal finds have greatly contradicted our perception of the species. In Kindred, Rebecca Wragg Sykes combs through the avalanche of scientific discoveries of the species and uses her experience at the cutting-edge of Paleolithic research to share our new understanding of Neanderthals, shoving aside cliches of rag-clad brutes in an icy wasteland. She reveals them to be curious, clever connoisseurs of their world, technologically inventive and ecologically adaptable. They ranged across vast tracts of tundra and steppe, but also stalked in dappled forests and waded in the Mediterranean Sea. Above all, they were successful survivors for more than 300,000 years, during times of massive climatic upheaval. Shermer and Sykes also discuss:

    • the nature of species and if Neanderthals and Homo sapiens are one or two species,
    • the deep time span of Neanderthals,
    • the wide geography of Neanderthals,
    • how archaeologists work today to discern Neanderthal lives and minds,
    • Neanderthal DNA and what we have learned from it,
    • Neanderthal bodies,
    • Neanderthal brains and minds,
    • Neanderthal tools and what they tell us about their lives,
    • Neanderthal hunting/caloric needs,
    • Neanderthal art,
    • Neanderthal sex and love and social lives,
    • Neanderthal death, burial, afterlife beliefs, and possible religious beliefs, and
    • extinction: what happened to the Neanderthals?

    Rebecca Wragg Sykes has been fascinated by the vanished worlds of the Pleistocene ice ages since childhood, and followed this interest through a career researching the most enigmatic characters of all, the Neanderthals. After a Ph.D. on the last Neanderthals living in Britain, she worked in France at the world-famous PACEA laboratory, Université de Bordeaux, on topics ranging from Neanderthal landscapes and territories in the Massif Central region of south-east France, to examining how they were the first ancient humans to produce a synthetic material and tools made of multiple parts. Alongside her academic activities, she has also earned a reputation for exceptional public engagement. The public can follow her research through a personal blog and Twitter account, and she frequently writes for the popular media, including the Scientific American and Guardian science blogs. Becky is passionate about sharing the privileged access scientists have to fascinating discoveries about the Neanderthals. She is also co-founder of the influential Trowelblazers project, which highlights women archaeologists, palaeontologists and geologists through innovative outreach and collaboration.

    This dialogue was recorded on October 14, 2020 as part of the Science Salon Podcast series hosted by Michael Shermer and presented by The Skeptics Society, in California.

  • What Lived On Earth Before Dinosaurs?

    11:00

    What Lived On Earth Before Dinosaurs?
    ► Subscribe:

    A long time ago dinosaurs roamed the earth. They lived, they hunted, they killed, and they ruled. Then the earth was struck by an asteroid about the size of Rhode Island, and they were wiped out.

    This allowed mammals to rise and with mammals came human beings.

    However, what was the earth like before dinosaurs ruled, and what caused them to disappear?

    In this video we’re going to explore the strange creatures that ruled the earth long before the dinosaurs took their first steps. We’re going to meet giant insects and terrifying arthropods, as well as some of humanity’s earliest relatives.

  • Oldest LIVING Fossils Around The World!

    13:11

    Check out the oldest living fossils around the world! From prehistoric animals descending from dinosaurs to rare a creatures that are still alive, this top 10 list of oldest wildlife is amazing!

    Watch our LONGEST Living Organisms In The World! video here:

    10. Aardvark
    The aardvark is a perfect example of a living fossil. It’s a totally unique mammal and has remained unchanged for millions of years. Also known as “oryc-ter-opus afer” the word ‘aardvark’ comes from the Afrikaan language in South Africa. It means “earth pig” or “ground pig”.
    The solitary creature’s strong senses of smell and hearing make it an excellent hunter on open grassland. It has a long nose which it uses to sniff out termites and ants. That combined with its tough hide, big claws and long sticky tongue means this critter creates a big headache for any insects crossing its path. The aardvark emerges at night from a burrow. They’re great burrowers and can dig a shelter for themselves surprisingly quickly with their claws.
    Those claws come in really handy when tucking into a termite burrow. The aardvark sticks its 1.5 foot (0.46 m) tongue in the hole and licks out the unlucky inhabitants. It has a strong tail which can be used to brace itself as it feeds. The tail can also be used as a club. The aardvark is a highly specialized animal that has all kinds of talents!

    9. Red Panda
    Everyone loves the giant black and white panda. But did you know this isn’t the original? The word ‘panda’ was first used to describe this little fella in 1825 by Frédéric Cuvier, a zoologist from France. Its other, less catchy title is ‘Ail-urus ful-gens’ which means “fire-colored cat” even though it isn’t a cat. It actually has its own family name, ‘Ailuridae’. Fossils of the red panda have been discovered that are up to 4 million years old! You wouldn’t think that such a cute critter existed that long ago!
    The red panda lives in Asia at high altitude in trees and mountains and has fur the colour of cinnamon. Isn’t it cute?? They’re small and are generally as big as a house cat, between 30-50 inches long (76cm-127cm). Like the giant panda, its diet consists mostly of bamboo and maybe some other small birds and rodents every now and then for some protein. Another similarity is the prominent wrist bone which can be used like a thumb to grip stuff. Its long claws help it hold onto tree bark and a long tail helps it balance. You need a good sense of balance when you’re so high up!
    The face markings on a red panda are called “tear tracks” which is appropriate as the panda is on the endangered species list. Deforestation has spelled disaster for its habitat. Because bamboo is disappearing it means the red panda could too. It has to eat between 1-2 kg (2-4 lbs) of bamboo to survive. That’s 20-30% of its own body weight! Hunting and poachers have also greatly affected the red panda population.
    By the way if you think this amazing animal looks familiar it’s probably because the red panda (and of course the fox) inspired the logo of Mozilla Firefox. You could even be watching this video on a Firefox browser. Coincidence, I think not!

    8. Tuatara
    This next living fossil co-existed with the dinosaurs before its order died out 60 million years ago. The tuatara lizards are found on the islands of New Zealand and Australia and live off of other little animals and eggs amongst other things. They’ve even been known to eat their own young so… don’t mess with them.
    On their neck and back you’ll see a crest made of spines. This is used both to attract mates and fend off opponents. It’s very versatile… when it comes to the tuatara, crest is best! Their coloring ranges from green to brown to red. They can actually change color during their lifespan. They grow up to an impressive 1.6 ft (0.5 m) and weigh up to 1.5 kg (3.3 lbs).
    The tuatara is a big lizard but its greatest threat is of the smaller variety. Rats and mice can quickly eat through their food supply and the tuatara’s slow breeding means they’re too slow to stop them. It’s hard to keep up with the reproductive capabilities of a rodent! A tuatara can live anywhere between 60-100 years so they need to keep themselves topped up!
    It doesn’t help that so many of them have been poached for private collections. The tuatara have been protected by New Zealand law since 1895. If you’re looking to go and see one up close we recommend you try a zoo. Try avoiding going into their natural habitat because you may cause more harm than good.

    Origins Explained is the place to be to find all the answers to your questions, from mysterious events and unsolved mysteries to everything there is to know about the world and its amazing animals!

  • Alesi: The Life, Death, and Discovery of an Ancestor

    1:22:58

    The recent discovery of a 13 million-year-old fossil infant ape skull has offered a rare glimpse of what the common ancestor of all living apes and humans may have looked like. The fossil, nicknamed “Alesi,” belongs to a newly named species called Nyanzapithecus alesi. Alesi was discovered in a desolate region of Kenya by John Ekusi, a member of Dr. Isaiah Nengo’s research team. In this talk, Dr. Nengo will share the story of finding this rare fossil and discuss the secrets that cutting-edge technology has uncovered about the life of this ancient infant.

    Isaiah Nengo, Ph.D., was born in Nairobi, Kenya. He holds a BS in Zoology and Botany from the University of Nairobi and a PhD in Biological Anthropology from Harvard University. He is an associate director and research professor at the Turkana Basin Institute, Stony Brook University. He was Fulbright Scholar at the National Museums of Kenya and the University of Nairobi in 2012/13. Dr. Nengo’s research focuses on the search for the ancestors of apes and humans in Africa. He is the recipient of five Leakey Foundation Research Grants.

    This is an old version of Professor Lee Berger's lecture on the Australopithecus prometheus fossils of Makapansgat. For the new version, please go here:

    In the second episode of Professor Lee Berger’s series of lectures on human origin, he delves into his favourite hominid-bearing site, Makapansgat, to demonstrate the fossils of Australopithecus prometheus. Named after the Greek hero, Prometheus, who stole fire from the gods, this fossil inspired not only the opening scene of Stanley Kubric’s cult-classic, 2001 Space Odyssey, but it also inspired a whole new science called Taphonomy – the science of the grave. #Witsresearch #humanorigins #palaeolectures.

  • Mining for Fossil Bugs and Feathers in Wyoming’s Green River Formation Lagerstätte

    12:11

    The Green River Formation is a lagerstätte known for its soft tissue preservation of fossils. In this rare trip fossil hunting in Wyoming we had the opportunity to dig for these fossil bugs in the 18 layer of one of Warfield Fossil's quarries. Green River fossils are very similar to other lagerstätten like the Solnhofen limestone formation in Germany. We were incredibly lucky to discover our first fossil feathers in this trip along with a multitude of fossil bugs, fossil fish, and fossil leaves.

  • River fossil hunting adventure: rare plesiosaur bone discovery and retrieval

    14:49

    River treasure!

    A while back I stumbled across this large bone in a Cretaceous area. I suspected it was the limb bone of a plesiosaur or mosasaur but it was way too heavy to carry back. I had the idea of waiting for the river level to rise after some rain and to use my boat to float it down river.

    Last week we had some heavy rains and I thought it was time to go and retrieve the fossil!

  • 20 Photos of Creatures Stuck in Time

    8:48

    From spiders stuck in eternal battle, to a desert scattered with whale fossils, these are 20 Photos of Creatures Stuck in Time!


    India was the site of an uncommonly large collection of insects discovered encased in amber, some of which you can see in this picture. Even the surface details on the creature’s body are visible. The extraordinarily well preserved specimens were found in a coal mine in Gujarat (guu-juh-raht), a province in the western part of the country. At some 330 pounds, the discovery ranks as one of the biggest collections of amber ever recorded. An international group of fossil hunters have found ancient spiders, ants, flies and bees. More than 700 arthropods have been identified in this group that includes arachnids, insects and crustaceans.

    Scientists claimed to find the biggest-ever stash of dinosaur fossils in China.In 2008 around 7600 fossils were unearthed from an eastern province, leading the site to be dubbed “Dinosaur City”. Included were the remains of a hadrosaur that stood 65-feet tall!

    Queensland’s outback in Australia was the site of fish fossils that dated back some 100 million years. The skull of a huge primitive fish called a Cooyoo (kuu-yuu) was one of the fossils discovered. Researchers say the animal measured more than 3 meters and had teeth 2cm long, and had a powerful tail.

    20 fossils discovered in Scotland yielded a collection of plants, fish and amphibians that lived up to 360 million years ago. Included were well-preserved specimens of millipedes, ferns and even an amphibian’s tooth (pictured) preserved for posterity.

    A fossil find in Brazil in 2011 contained insects dating back 120 million years. Because these creatures displayed an odd mixture of characteristics, they were dubbed “Frankenstein insects”. The bugs had the body formation and wings of a dragonfly, the forelegs of a praying mantis and wing veins resembling a mayfly’s. The closest living relatives of these ancient insects would be mayflies … they actually have no modern descendants.

    See the remains of Yuka, the wooly mammoth, incredibly well-preserved from 39,000 years ago when she last roamed the the frozen plains of what is now Siberia. Yuka is a unique case, because her carcass was nearly complete when it was recovered. Just to give some perspective in terms of the animal’s size, mammoths were nearly twice the size of modern-day elephants and could weigh over 17,000 pounds!

    This is the well-preserved fossil of an Ectobius cockroach, found in Colorado and thought to have lived some 50 million years ago in North America. It looks disturbingly similar to today’s common household pest … Guess they aren’t going away soon.

    Here’s the case of a parasite that latched onto its host and wouldn’t let go … for for the next 49 million years ago. The photo by Jason Dunlop shows an ant (the big creature) with the mite atop its head. It’s one of only two examples known where fossilized mites were preserved while still being attached to the host.

    It’s not everyday one can say they went surfing and saw a dinosaur. That sorta-kind happened in 2012 when some surfers in Santa Cruz discovered what appeared to be a row of fossilized vertebrae … although some may have thought it was a mermaid sighting. Experts felt the picture shows the fossils of an extinct whale that lived during the Pliocene era, some 5 to 3 million years ago.

    A fossilized whale skeleton in the desert? 50 million years ago, a vast ocean existed in what today is the Egyptian Sahara Desert. Known as the Valley of the Whales, the area has yielded the fossilized remains of sharks and plants and is now a UNESCO world heritage site.

    At first glance this could be some sort of crystal ball or an alien egg. But it’s actually an amber stone containing tiny insects that lived some 20 million years ago. The specimens were found in Peru in 2011. Researchers have identified spiders in addition to spores and pollen fossils.

    This 66-pound fossil of an ancient rhino’s skull and jaw found in Turkey tells the tale of a horrible way to die. Researchers think the animal died over 9 million years ago after being trapped in a volcanic eruption, and essentially baked to death at temperatures of 840 F.

  • 10 INCREDIBLE New Fossil Finds

    8:04

    From bacterial living fossils, to newly discovered coal mine artifacts, these are 10 INCREDIBLE New Fossil Finds !


    Scientists got some new insights into the brains of dinosaurs. And it’s thanks to a seemingly-ordinary brown pebble found on a beach in southern England more than a decade ago. Paleontologists have discovered the ‘pebble’ is actually the rare fossilized brain tissue from a dinosaur's skull … one that lived during the Cretaceous period, over 130 million years ago. Scientists from Oxford and Cambridge universities think it belonged to a large herbivore related to an Iguanodon (ig-wann-uh-don). They were large herbivores with long tails and hind legs longer than their forelimbs. And their brains had distinct similarities to modern day birds and crocodiles. The find is extremely rare because soft organs like brain tissue normally don’t survive. In this case, it’s believed the animal died in a swamp. It’s head probably landed in water that provided an environment that was both highly acidic and low in oxygen. The creature’s brain was essentially pickled and preserved.


    Conical (conn-ih-col) structures called stromatolites (stroe-matto-lites) found in Greenland may have been shown to be the oldest fossil of a living organism on earth. The series of miniscule shapes were created by prehistoric bacteria … and have been preserved in sedimentary rock for 3.7 billion years! Stromatolites are layered structures that form in shallow water ... as mud and sand are glued together by microorganisms. They provide evidence that complex life was already thriving at early stages of the planet's history. Geologists found these stromatolites embedded in a metacarbonate (meta-car-bonn-ate) rock outcropping on the southwest coast of Greenland … they measured between 1 to 4 centimeters high. This new discovery predates the previous oldest known evidence of life by over 220 million years. Stromatolites can still be found today in certain shallow coastal and volcanic regions.


    The oldest fossilized evidence of insects mating was discovered in China. The fossil exhibits the couple in a face-to-face position, and was found in the sediment of a lake in Inner Mongolia. Experts think the insects antics date back around 165 million years ago. It’s thought the two were interrupted when a volcano erupted, releasing toxic gases that killed them. The wind blew them into a lake … and there they laid buried and protected by sediment for millions of years. Scientist claim that only 40 such fossils of insects copulating have ever been found worldwide, making them extremely rare. And this one predates the oldest known fossil by some 65 million years!

    Welsh Dragon -- Fossils of a new species of dinosaur dating back around 200 million years were unearthed in Wales … and it’s believed to be the world’s earliest specimen of a Jurassic-era dinosaur. This creature doesn’t have wings or breathe fire like the Welsh national symbol … but it is the first dinosaur fossil of a meat-eating theropod found in Wales … and only the second dinosaur ever found in the country overall. Its well-preserved skeleton was found on a beach, spread across five slabs of rock … several loose blocks contained sharp claws and curved, razor-sharp teeth. The so-called dragon was a small, slim and agile creature that measured around 50 centimeters tall and 200 centimeters long … it had a lengthy tail that helped its balance, and walked on two legs. Experts believe the unnamed theropod dinosaur was about the size of a dog and had a fuzzy coating of proto-feathers to keep them warm. Despite its diminutive size, the creature is thought to be a distant relative of the Tyrannosaurus Rex!

    Ever heard of a dinosaur called ‘Doyathinkhesaurus’? It’s a play on words, of course … but scientists have discovered a dinosaur that was actually able to change its skin color -- and that’s no joke! It’s real name is a Psittacosaurus (sit-TAK-ah-sawr-us), meaning ‘parrot lizard’. The creature is named after its parrot-like beak … and was about the size of a labrador retriever.
    It lived in northeastern China over 130 million years ago, and was a relative of triceratops. Analyzing well-preserved fossils, a research team in the UK found that Psittacosaurus used camouflage called countershading. It’s a pattern that conceals shadows on an animal and can make it appear flat and inconspicuous … leaving their predators baffled. The animal likely developed the ability due to its smaller size making it attractive to predators. Countershading is used by many animals today, including penguins, dolphins and deer. Did you know when scientists reconstructed an image of this dinosaur, they thought it resembled ET … would you agree?

  • 35-million-year-old fossils in a New Zealand mountain stream

    18:33

    I head into a new district, Mackenzie Country, to look for fossils in the mountains around Lake Tekapo. It's an amazingly beautiful country and the terrain was very different to what I was used to. I wasn't sure if I was going to find anything but managed to find some amazing gastropods and had fun exploring a new area.

    The area is Eocene, around 34-million-years-old, way older than I thought. Next time I'm sure I'm going to get some shark teeth from the area.

    I have uploaded the finds from this video to my website: if you want to take a closer look at some of the finds.

    - large bivalve
    - large whelk
    - Zeacuminia tahuia shell
    - medium bivalve
    - coral
    - the small shell I found while prepping the whelk

    Top 5 Fossil Collecting Places
    1. Westmoreland State Park, Potomac River Banks, United States
    2. Fossil Park, Northwest Ohio, United States
    3. Lyme Regis, Dorset, UK
    4. The Rock Glen Conservation Area, Ontario, Canada
    5. The Isle of Wight beaches, UK.

    Here are 5 of the best places in the world, where one can find and pick up fossils!

    1. If you want megalodon teeth, this is the place: Westmoreland State Park in the united states. Hidden in the sand on the edges of the Potomac's riverbanks in Westmoreland State Park are such gems as these: Megalodon teeth like this youtuber is finding by the dozens. The area was once a shallow ocean where these giant sharks swam.

    2.Fossil Park
    375 million years ago, Northwest Ohio was also underwater. Now, it's not. Fossil Park in Sylvania is a rock quarry where you can dig up the remains of the area's booty to dig up, and the best part is that it's all free. There's also a nice walking path, and interpretwatery past, including brachiopods, coral. There are 5 acres of Devonian-era ive signs to help you figure out what fossils you've found.

    3.UK Lyme Regis, Dorset
    The Jurassic Coast is 95 miles of coastline that stretches from East Devon to Dorset, and fossils are kind of a big deal here. Such a big deal in fact that it was made England’s first World Heritage Site in 2001. These limestone cliffs (including the Durdle Door arch) are made up of layers of sedimentary rock and they’re brimming with fossils.

    4.Nangetty, Australia
    The coal mines of Nangetty were once credited with saving the struggling region’s economy and today they’ve been repurposed for a different kind of conservation. The Coalseam Conservation Park works to preserve the regions naturally-preserved marine fossils. The nearby limestone cliffs drop fossils on occasion and they date all the back to 250 million years ago.

    5.The Isle of Wight in England, UK.
    The tiny island measuring 26 miles by 14 miles is a popular tourist destination due to its proximity to major cities like Portsmouth, Southampton and London and it is particularly popular with families because it has miles and miles of beautiful sandy beaches, many of which are rich in fossils. So get yourself a guided map and get to the best beaches for fossil hunting. You may find dinosaur bones, fossiled fish scales, ammonites, shark teeth. Even fossilized dino poop, if you’re very lucky.

    Fossil Selling websites:
    1: The well-known Fossilera.com

  • Fossil hunting: 2 days of shark vertebrae, bone clusters and a mystery fossil

    23:11

    Check out my patreon for more content: from $4 per month.

    I head out to two different spots that I have found using Google Earth to explore them and see whether they have any fossils. I was unsure on the age of the areas and I'm still not sure, however, I am pretty certain it's younger than Cretaceous based on the lack of marine reptile (mosasaur, plesiosaur) and belemnites.

    The two days were completely different weather wise and shows how different it can be from day to day living on an island!

    Let me know what fossil you think I should prep first!

  • How a Coal Mine Dig Unearthed a Prehistoric Mega-Snake

    11:21

    Most people have never heard of the Cerrejón coal mine, located in Colombia. The mine pumps out over 30 million tons of coal each year, and it's also become a critical site for scientists. In fact, the coal mine ranks as one of the best fossil sites in the world, providing a window into a tropical rain forest from 60 million years ago. Scientists almost missed the fossils at Cerrejón - until an undergraduate noticed a surprising number of sandstone impressions of fossil leaves. His discovery led to an expedition that found multiple new species, including the largest snake in history.

  • Near Record MAKO SHARK JAW Restored

    13:54

    Kat and I learned how to preserve a shark jaw this week and we wanted to share our experience with you. Shark Jaw removal is a difficult process and we don't condone it for trophy purposes. However, this jaw was salvaged in the early 70's by a dive shop near Cocoa Beach, Florida. We acquired the jaw after it spent 50 years collecting dust. And we hope to preserve it for use in our educational programs. The jaw is incredibly large and may be largest Mako shark ever caught fishing in Florida.

    Through exploring, Fossil hunting, and artifact hunting, we can make a physical connection to the history around us. We are passionate about that connection and want to share it with others. If you value this content, consider supporting us on Patreon so we can help others “dig science.”


    We plan on hunting for a diversity of fossils all throughout the US this year with other fossil hunters such as @Paleocris, @Wildkyle, Everdayimshoveling, Ancient Artworks, Shark Teeth and Fossils and Bone Valley Collections. We hope to find beautiful Megalodon teeth, gems and minerals, great white shark teeth, artifacts, arrowheads, and megafauna creatures like mammoths and mastodons. We will also include videos on how to fossil hunt in Florida and explore discussions on some of our favorite topics in paleontology, archeology, and geology!

    32:02

    What can you learn about ancient creatures from the fossils they have left behind? Find out how scientists discover millions-of-years-old dinosaur fossils in the field, bring them back to the Museum, and study them in the laboratory. 

    In this Google Virtual Field trip, renowned paleontologist Mark Norell leads a behind-the-scenes tour of the Museum Paleo Prep Lab. This is where real discoveries are made, as experts extract fossils from rock and examine the evidence to determine what kind of dinosaur it was and how it might have lived. You will also meet a fossil preparator who plays a huge role in helping paleontologists piece together the past—fossil by fossil. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions about what you can learn from fossils and what's it's like to be a paleontologist.

  • Part 2: Retrieving the Petrified Wood Tree Stump - Fossil adventure in New Zealand

    7:06

    I head back to the Cretaceous deposit to try and retrieve that monstrous piece of petrified wood. This time I'm armed with a big winch, more low-GI snacks and Louis and Marlonique!

    Craig had to go back to work so unfortunately he couldn't come along this time.

    The method I'm trying today is to create some skids to go over the larger rocks until I can get to a place where I can get it on the wagon. This was honestly one of the hardest things I had ever attempted.

    Thanks so much Louis and Marlonique for helping out. It would have been impossible with the two of them.

    I also have a rockhounding channel which features agate and petrified wood hunting which you can find here:

  • Marine fossil deposits - now with more eel

    19:09

    Thiago and I had a blast today! We head down to the North Canterbury shores to some sites I haven't been before. We explore some amazing valleys full of marine deposits and come away with some great fossils, it was like being in the lost world.

    I also found a dead eel which is by far the largest eel I have found outside of Willowbank (a nature preserve in Christchurch) - no idea if it died in the ocean or got washed down the stream.

    Let me know what your favourite fossil was that we found today.

  • Public Lecture Feb 2020: Jurassic brain teasers, Stephan Lautenschlager

    58:14

    Traditionally, palaeontology is a descriptive discipline focusing on the characterisation, comparison and description of the preserved remains of long-extinct organisms. This has not substantially changed over the years.

    However, recent technological advances have revolutionised the field of palaeontology. New technologies, such as computed tomography (CT) scanning, now allow the visualisation and study of fossils in unprecedented detail, while modern computer simulations and biomechanical analysis techniques let palaeontologists explore the function and behaviour of fossil animals.

    Although there are still many things we do not know about life in the past 500 million years, this new field of virtual palaeontology has brought us a lot closer to reconstructing and understanding the biology and ecology of extinct organisms. This lecture will explore the new technologies used in modern palaeontology and demonstrate how much information can be obtained from a few “old” bones.

    This lecture is also a part of the Palaeontological Association's 'Innovations in Palaeontology' lecture series, and Stephan Lautenschlager is the PalAss Exceptional Lecturer.

    Speaker
    Stephan Lautenschlager, University of Birmingham

    Stephan is a vertebrate palaeontologist and Lecturer for Palaeobiology at the University of Birmingham. He holds a PhD from the University of Bristol and degrees in geology and palaeontology, as well as in software engineering from a previous life as professional software engineer.

    Stephan’s research focuses on using computer simulations, digital visualisation and virtual reality to study the form and function of fossil vertebrates, including dinosaurs, early mammals and sabre-toothed cats.
