    It arose from rhino ancestors that were a lot smaller, but Paraceratherium would take a different evolutionary path. Believe it or not, it actually became so big that it probably got close to what scientists think might be the actual upper limit for a land mammal. 

    The illustration of Paraceratherium used in the thumbnail is by Dmitry Bogdanov!

  • The Story of the Dino Stampede

    11:24

    To try to solve the puzzle of Lark Quarry, experts have turned to a special subfield of paleontology -- paleoichnology, or the study of trace fossils -- to reconstruct exactly what happened on that spot, on that day, nearly 100,000 millennia ago.

  • 11 Largest Creatures Ever Existed on Earth

    10:01

    The largest land animal of our time is the African elephant! It weighs more than the anchor of a cruise ship and is 5 times heavier than the tallest animal on the planet - a giraffe. But still, the elephant loses a lot to Argentinosaurus - the largest herbivorous dinosaur in the world. This giant will cover just over half of the baseball field and weighs like 3 subway cars.

    But no matter how dangerous and huge land animals are, in fact, they’re babies compared to those creatures that live in the seas and oceans. For example, the sperm whale weighs like a herd of 50 cows, and almost three times as much as Shastasaurus, while being of a similar length! Yup, today, we're talking about the largest creatures in the world!

    SUMMARY:
    - The largest modern land predator is the polar bear. It is believed that on Earth, the polar bear has no enemies among animals.
    - Spinosaurus is considered the largest land predator that ever existed on the planet. Its length reached 49 feet, approximately 2 London red buses.
    - About 460 million years ago, sea scorpions resembling large space bugs inhabited shallow waters and terrified all small marine mammals.
    - Of modern insects, no one will compete with this creature.
    - The largest marine predator ever is considered Shastasaurus. It lived about 235 million years ago and reached a length of 65.5 feet.
    - The largest flying bird to date is an albatross. Its wingspan is 11 feet - almost like the length of the Volkswagen Beetle.
    - But the albatross easily loses to its distant ancestor - the bird Argentavis, who lived 5-8 million years ago. Its wingspan is almost 20 feet.
    - A blue whale is the largest creature that ever existed on Earth appears on the ring. Its size is comparable to a 9-story building.
    - Unlike land, the ocean has a much greater chance of a huge creature appearing.
    - Almost all seafarers have been scaring each other with stories about Kraken since ancient times, but the worst thing in these tales is that they’re absolutely true.
    - Around the world, since the 17th century, many Kraken sightings have been recorded. Modern scientists have given them a more scientific name - architeuthis.
    - If the organism is given a safe area and environment with unlimited food, then in the process of evolution a real Godzilla may appear.
    - The bones inside animals can't withstand enormous weight, but the body structure of almost all insects is completely different. Outwardly, they are covered with a skeleton, while soft tissues are hidden inside.
    - The tallest tree in the world is Hyperion — a Sequoia sempervirens. Its height reaches 379 feet! It is 74 feet taller than the Statue of Liberty and about the same height as a 38-story building!

    #viral #amazing #100M #animals


    Dangerous Prehistoric Animals
    The world is 4.5 billion years old, and throughout these years, our world has seen some truly remarkable
    things. We've seen several extinction events, several ice ages and have even managed to suffer a solar
    flare.
    But these wonders aren't the only remarkable things our world has seen. It has also seen the rise and fall
    of dangerous beasts of the air, earth, and seas. Beasts that can chomp through bone, and beasts that
    can bite through an entire ship.
    On today's video, we'll be taking a look at the most dangerous prehistoric animal that has ever walked
    the earth. Watch out for number three on this list— some say he's still alive and that he walks the
    mountains as Big Foot.
    10 Phorusrhacidae
    The Phorusrhacidae sounds like a regular scientific name you give to a regular bird. And to a large
    extent, it is. But the name that the Phorusrhacidae truly goes by is the "Terror Bird".
    And trust us, this beast of the air isn't called the terror bird for anything. People who named it had
    pretty good reasons for doing so. These birds are an extinct class of large carnivorous flightless birds
    that were the largest species of apex predators in South America during the Cenozoic era.
    They could be as short as three feet, and they could grow as tall as 10 feet. Most scientists believe that
    their closest relatives today are the 80-centimetre-tall (31 in) seriemas. Asides it's terrifying height, the
    terror bird had an extraordinarily flexible and strong neck that allowed it to carry its' extremely heavy
    head, and attack with ridiculous pace and power. It had an eighteen-inch long beak, and it was
    extremely fast.
    How fast? Well, it could reach speeds of 48 kilometres per hour. For comparison, Usain Bolt managed to
    clock 44 kilometres per hour only once in his life— and he did this for only a few seconds.
    So, the Terror bird is a chicken that's 10 feet tall, in possession of a short sword as a beak, and can run
    faster than Usain Bolt.
    Are you not terrified? Thankfully, it's a prehistoric animal and is extinct today.
    #9 Argavantis
    Argavantis sounds like the name of an elf out of a fairy tale. This Elf, of course, has nice flowing white
    hair, kind blue eyes, and soft words that'll make you swoon.
    But we all know that what something sounds like and what something is are two very different things.
    The Argavantis may sound like the name of a good elf, but it's a Vulture with a twenty feet wingspan.
    And yeah, this vulture was surely one of the largest birds to ever take flight. While some early
    calculations say the bird has a wingspan of about 24 feet, recent calculations and analysis have placed

    the length of the bird's wings at 21 feet. It may not be quite as large as 24 feet, but it is still
    extraordinarily large.
    But we've only spoken about the magnificent wingspan of this bird. What of its standing height?
    As per recent papers, the bird was able to reach a standing height of about 5ft 11 inches. That's taller
    than most human beings.
    So the Argavantis is a near 6 feet tall bird with a wingspan of 20 feet. And what's more? This bird was
    carnivorous and often swept down to devour carrion.
    8 Dunkleosteus
    The Dunkleosteus is what you get when the Rock from Fantastic Four turns into a fish. This fish, of
    course, is not your regular fish.
    It's a beast that can grow up to twenty-eight feet long. Asides it's monstrous size, the Dunkleosteus had
    a monstrous bite as well. How monstrous? Well, it could deliver bites with over a thousand square inch
    of force. It also weighed about four short tons, making it one of the largest fishes to ever exist.
    But that's not all. The peculiar thing about this fish is its two-part bony band armoured exterior. This
    made it a relatively slow but powerful swimmer. But we don't think this would have been a problem
    from the big old and armoured dunk. He would only need to wait and ambush prey— he was certain to
    destroy them with one bite. Amazingly, the Dunk could open and close its jaws in less than 80
    milliseconds. Yes, that's less than a second.
    #7 A Rat The Size Of A Bull
    The Josephoartigasia monetis, an extinct species of South American caviomorph rodent, is the largest
    rodent known, and lived from about 4 to 2 million years ago during the Pliocene to the early Pleistocene
    era.
    The Rat may have weighed up to a ton and was basically the size of a bull. Imagine how scary regular
    rats are today.

  • Whale evolution: researchers discover how whales became the largest creatures on Earth - TomoNews

    6:12

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — Researchers have brought forward evidence they believe helps decipher how whales evolved to become the gigantic creatures we see today.

    Roughly 50 million years ago, whales were hoofed mammals on land, evolving to become creatures of the oceans. Over the following 20 to 30 millions years, some developed the unique ability to filter-feed, but it wasn’t until about 4.5 million years ago that whales, of several different breeds, started popping up as truly massive beings.

    From studying 140 fossilized whale specimens and noting the climate patterns taking place during the time of this whale growth explosion, researchers at the Smithsonian Institute’s National Museum of Natural History believe they’ve pinpointed the environmental conditions that set the stage for birth of these underwater giants. The team’s findings were published on May 23 in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B.

    In the midst of the Plio-Pleistocene era, nutrients such as iron entered the water by means of runoff from glaciers in the Northern Hemisphere. Meanwhile, wind-driven upwelling cycles forced cold water to the surface, along with a plethora of organic material. The nutrient-rich waters drew in tons upon tons of zooplankton and krill, forming underwater walls of whale food stretching for miles. These gatherings took place seasonally, demanding whales travel far distances between feedings. Only the most massive whales had the fuel to make the trips, while the smaller ones eventually died off. Altogether, these dynamic processes allowed whales to grow from the size of minivans to the length of a couple school buses in a relatively short period of time.

  • When Rodents Had Horns

    9:12

    These odd rodents belong to a genus known as Ceratogaulus, but they’re more commonly called horned gophers, because, you guessed it, they had horns. And it turns out the horns probably had a purpose - one that rodents would likely benefit from today.

    Samantha Hopkins’ 2005 paper on Ceratogaulus with figures featured in this episode (Thanks, Samantha!):

  • The Rise and Fall of Dinosaurs: Steve Brusatte

    1:20:25

    This is a joint lecture with the Geological Society of London and the Palaeontological Association as part of the Geological Society's Year of Life lecture series.

    Lecture Synopsis:
    The dinosaurs ruled the Earth for over 150 million years--evolving into spectacular giants like Brontosaurus and T. rex. In this talk, paleontologist Steve Brusatte, author of the book The Rise and Fall of the Dinosaurs, will recount the story of where dinosaurs came from, how they rose up to dominance, how most of them went extinct when a giant asteroid hit, and how some of them lived on as today's birds. At a time when Homo sapiens has existed for less than 200,000 years and we are already talking about planetary extinction, dinosaurs are timely reminder of what humans can learn from the magnificent creatures that ruled the earth before us.

    Speaker Bio:
    Steve Brusatte is a paleontologist who hunts and writes about dinosaurs. He is a professor at the University of Edinburgh but grew up in the Midwestern USA. Steve has traveled around the world digging up dinosaurs and, working with many international colleagues, has named more than 15 new species, including the tyrannosaur 'Pinocchio rex' (Qianzhousaurus) and the raptor Zhenyuanlong.

    He has written several books for kids and adults, most notably the adult pop science book The Rise and Fall of the Dinosaurs (2018), which was a New York Times bestseller in the USA, Sunday Times bestseller in the UK, and Globe & Mail bestseller in Canada. His work is often covered by the popular press and he has appeared on several television shows, such as the National Geographic extravaganza T. rex Autopsy, where he was part of the team that dissected a scientifically accurate life-sized model of a T. rex.

    Schedule:
    18.00 - Start of Livestream
    18.00 - Welcome and Start of Lecture
    18.50 - Question and Answer session
    19.30 - End of stream

    Note on Q&A session:
    If you wish to ask a question through YouTube please post your question, as clearly and concisely as possible, in the live chat. We will monitor the chat and relay questions to the speaker during the session.

  • All The Tallest And Longest Things Ever Existed on Earth

    10:31

    You ever wonder why people, plants, and animals only reach a certain height? Most of the Earth’s inhabitants can't grow too tall because of the pull of gravity. For example, if you were to double in size, you’d become 8 times heavier, and the force of gravity would crush you. Yet some amazing lifeforms manage to find a loophole in this gravitational law, growing tall and proud. You’ll be surprised and shocked to see them. You'll see some jaw-dropping giants in the video, but the largest living thing on our planet is neither an animal nor a plant.

    Bonus: the largest living thing on Earth 9:24

    Music:


    SUMMARY
    -The tallest life forms on our planet are trees. Trees pretty much have one goal in life: to spend all their energy on growing taller than their neighbors.
    -The record holder among the redwoods is a tree with its own name: Hyperion. Discovered in 2006, this guy is so massive that you can’t even see the top.
    -The second-place medal for the world’s tallest tree species goes to the Australian Mountain-Ash, known in the scientific community as Eucalyptus regnans.
    -African bush elephants often reach a shoulder height of 13 feet.
    -The tallest living animal on Earth is the giraffe, whose leg alone is taller than the average human. Males grow up to 18 feet, and females are a bit shorter at around 14 feet tall.
    -The Blue Whale can reach a length of almost 100 feet! Their hearts are as big as a car, and their tongues weigh as much as a full-grown elephant.
    -The Lion's Mane Jellyfish can have up to 1,200 tentacles that grow as long as 120 feet.
    -The tallest member of the prehistoric animal family was the Sauroposeidon. Fossil records show that its height could reach 60 feet.
    -Born in 1868, John Rogan he towered at 8 foot 9 inches tall. There’s also Robert Wadlow, who is still the reigning champ of the tallest people ever to have lived. His nickname was The Giant of Illinois and he stood at 8 foot 11 inches.
    -The largest living thing on our planet is neither an animal nor a plant. That gold medal goes to the honey fungus.

  • Dinosaurs in Antarctica? Its True!

    2:33

    Millions of years ago, massive Dinosaurs enjoyed a mild climate, temperate waters and abundant vegetation on the ancient supercontinent of Gondwana, in an area known today as the continent of Antarctica.

    The first small, primitive dinosaurs appeared on the world stage 250 million years ago. Over time, their group of species flourished to become the dominant life-forms on Earth; but none of the known species existed for the entire age of the dinosaurs. Throughout the group's existence, individual dinosaur species were evolving and going extinct. About 66 million year ago, a mass extinction of the various species put a sudden end to their long reign. Dinosaurs are not entirely extinct, however, since all birds are direct descendants of dinosaurs, thereby making them dinosaurs too. Today, scientists looking for their fossils in Antarctica
    face a harsh environment. Extreme conditions on that landmass make excavating difficult. Ice covers almost all of Antarctica, sudden blizzards can bury dig sites, and gale-force winds scour the land. Despite operating in one of the least hospitable places on Earth, international researchers have painstakingly recovered fossils from the southernmost continent,
    including Cryolophosaurus and Glacialisaurus from the Jurassic period of Antarctica. Their discoveries reveal how dinosaurs lived and died in Antarctica, and how they moved between it and other parts of the world. Fossils themselves, and the sedimentary rocks they are found in, are very difficult to date directly. Instead, other methods are used to work out a
    fossil's age. These include radiometric dating of volcanic layers above or below the fossils or by comparisons to similar rocks and fossils of known ages. We hope you have enjoyed this fascinating overview of land-dwelling dinosaurs living in Antarctica.

  • Rise of the Mammals: Colorado Discovery that Rocked the World

    57:46

    Sixty-six million years ago a 6 mile wide asteroid slammed into Earth and caused the extinction of more than 75% of life on Earth, including the dinosaurs. This was the single worst day for life on Earth. How and when life rebounded in the aftermath of the extinction has been shrouded in mystery due to a poor fossil record. An extraordinary new discovery east of Colorado Springs preserves a remarkably complete fossil record with entire fossil mammals, turtles, crocodiles, and plants and paints a vivid picture of how life rebounded after Earth’s darkest hour.

    ABOUT THE PRESENTERS
    Dr. Tyler Lyson is curator of vertebrate paleontology at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, where he is responsible for the fossil reptiles collection.

    8:50

    Islands contain natures strangest animals. Due to a different environment and different selective pressures if a population of animals is isolated on an island then there evolution can take a very different path way to their ancestors, most commonly in becoming much smaller. Dinosaurs were not immune to this island dwarfism and this video explores one example of little dinosaurs that were created on an ancient island names hateg.

  • A Dinosaur Story Remake - The Long Voyage

    1:11:24

    Join Noasaurus and his herd, as they go on a journey to find a new home, after their old one is destroyed. Watch as they overcome every obstacle that blocks their path in this epic remake! Enjoy!

    This is a remake of the original A Dinosaur Story by HoopsandDinoman. I highly recommend you watch his version first, because as everyone knows, the remake almost never beats the original (Disney is living proof of that.)

    And finally, I want to thank everyone for being patient with me, as I continuously pushed back the release date and kept everyone waiting. I hope this was worth the wait!

    PS: whether this movie is successful or not, parts 2 and 3 will still come out because I hate leaving things unfinished.

    May 2014. Serengeti, Tanzania. We had seen a lot of hippos, but not walking on land. This was the first. They can actually run much faster than man. Again, hippos are very dangerous.
