Prehistoric Creatures That Exsist Today

Post by Rbjustme on Mon Dec 14, 2015 1:01 pm

These species of prehistoric creatures have survived for millions of years on earth, even through the ice ages and a polar shift that occurred way way back in time, which makes their survival quite remarkable. I wonder how many other specifies have survived that have yet to be rediscovered by man? Unfortunately this video runs into other video's which I cannot stop, so you will have to stop it manually....sorry. Look out!

It makes you wonder about the Megalodon shark doesn't it?

Wow, this is interesting!! A new species of prehistoric lizard has been found in a partly volcanic Island in Papua New Guinea! The have been around for over 2 million years, and grow to well over 3 feet long (1 Meter) The are isolated from any other species, definitely worth a read!!  Rippa Rita!

What a ripper, I love lizards, they are so fascinating to watch.  I wonder if they got there when the land chain still existed from Asia to Australia when it was called Gondwana?  Funny how we have a blue tongued lizard and they have found a blue tailed lizard, can only ponder mother nature and her great diversity when you read of something like this.

Amazing how animals adapt and evolve for all sorts of reasons.  Hope the cane toads don't get any bigger, any time soon.  Yuck!

Yes PK, the Komodo Dragon is another isolated lizard on the Islands off Indonesia, obviously from the days when Australia was called Gondwana. The documentary on our portal page mentions a similar scenario that you have. Our wildlife evolved from those days to adapt to our harsh climate, the documentary is worth a look at. Idea

I heard that CSIRO have developed a herpes virus that will kill 90% of the European Carp in Australian river systems - that deserves a YAY

Let's just hope that it doesn't kill something else as well. Watch it!
