    Imagine that in a million years the human species is extinct and whoever comes after us can’t find remins of human life cuz we never fossilized and our existence just gets lost. Damn.

      Scientists remind me of lost children sometimes.

        What if the monsters in our myths are actually animal species?

          Wow as a 28 year old, I never knew how interesting paleontology was until this amazing channel... which apparently is for kids 😂 thank you for blowing this adults mind with some amazing information! I wish you guys sold books on topics you talk about to dive deeper into some amazing topics. Specifically for me I love learning about evolution and climate change over the years of our planet. Would love to dig deeper and support your channel while growing my knowledge, with books.

                    So cool!

                    Does this mean there may have been animals from long ago we've never seen/imagined? 0.0
                    Maybe there could even be an animal with wheels for legs ^.^

                      I would REALLY appreciate factual information (documentation) regarding the TIME-INTERVALs of existing to non-existig (like the K-T boundary). That would really help the curious saps like me to better visualize 'LENGTH-of-EXISTENCE' for each cousin which once existed. Too much work? Then, QUIT!

                        I think the bigger question is how does a species survive for 60 million years without genetic variations turning it into something completely different in that time.

                          It is adapted well to its habitat, that selects for the same or similar genome. Many species of coelacanth did not survive to modern times.

Basically we can generally tell when something like that happens because we look at life today and say "ok, how would this creature logically look." Yes there is some guesswork, but it's very informed guesswork.
