That’s a cool video. I’d like to have each animal noted with when it went extinct, for reference.
I hope the beaver and the penguin took each other out simultaneously, like this.
I have some questions about heir methodology. Many of the animals are presented as being significantly larger than their modern equivalent, yet…
Well, here is at least a rough timeline for you.
Late Cretaceous: Campanian (84-72 Ma) – Archelon
Late Palaeocene (60-56 Ma) – Titanoboa
Late Eocene (38-34 Ma) – Anthropornis nordenskjoeldi
Late Oligocene (28-23 Ma) – Paraceratherium
Late Miocene (12-5 Ma) – Livyatan melvillei
Early Pliocene (5-3½ Ma) – Nuralagus, giant cheetah, megalodon
Late Pliocene (3½-2½ Ma) – Rhamphosuchus, Deinotherium, Megacamelus
Pleistocene (2½-0.01 Ma) – Castoroides, Hippopotamus gorgops, Megalania prisca, Sthenurus, Bison latifrons, Mosbach lion, Pachycrocuta
Early Holocene – Megaloceros, Arctotherium
1900s – Bernard wolf
I noticed it on the preceeding turtle comparison, where the extinct turtle was 4m in length and the extant turtle was 2 m but they looked he same size.
Ah, thanks! I did look some of them up. I should have been more clear that it would have been nice to see inside the video, just as added info.
We have a precise date (September 7, 2006) for when he went extinct. He was apparently a giant among animators and stood as tall as a human being.
I say that the scariest type of wolf is the Dick Wolf.
Lupus lex et ordo?
That’s the one.
