Prehistoric Animals

Parent Category: Animal Life
Prehistoric animals represent the vast majority of extinct animals. Through exploration, scientists are piecing together from the first sea dwelling organisms to modern day species. Types of questions covered are about animals who existed before recorded history and the ever popular debate as to what caused the dinosaur extinction.
Slight shifts caused frequent ice ages. Polar ice advanced andretreated each time, carving and moulding the land. A pattern ofthe Ice Ages emerged, but by the last Ice Age, the ice began tomelt and the sea levels rose rapidly. Many ice land bridges wereformed between continents. . There are not...
well there reptile so they could of buried there eggs in the ground
Unknown. No one knows how long any dinosaur eggs took to hatch.
It's a synonym for the genus Apatosaurus. There are rules for the naming of all organisms and they boil down to a first-come-first-served proviso. The fossils of this particular animal, when first found, were incomplete, but enough was available to establish the existence of a new dinosaur, and it...
Actions have reached $1500. That's all I know.
By fossilisation and permineralisation. . Fossilisation is caused by layers upon layers of sedimentburying the bones. As the layers of sediment above the buried bonesincreases, so does the pressure on the layers of sediment lowerdown. The pressure becomes so great that the bones and thesedimentary...
The short answer is "No." Years ago some anthropologists came across what is referred to as the "Paluxy Tracks." The Paluxy Tracks seemingly showed dinosaur and human footprints alongside one another, dating to the same time period. However, after much controversy it was determined that the ...
A recent megalodon tooth was found off the coast of hawaii and itweighed in at 2 lbs based on all megalodon tooth findings theaverage is about 1.5 lbs
A producer is an organism that creates food by utilizing an energysource, for example, plants using sunlight to create sugars.Apatosaurus was an animal, though, and all animals areheterotrophs, meaning that they have to consume food for theirenergy. Apatosaurus was a consumer, not a producer.
The dinosaurs have been projected to have died around the menosoicera which is exactly 69.4 million years ago. The most common theorywhy is that an asteroid hit Earth and giant tsunamis emerged fromearthquakes under the india-Asia continental plate. Which destroyedall sea and animal life in most of...
The fat or blubber of an animal was rendered into oil.
Mean surface temperature over period duration 16.5 °C is theclosest I could find.
Dinosaurs were once considered reptiles, but now they are thought to be a separate group of their own closely related to reptiles and birds.
no it was a carnivore or plant eater
It is not generally thought that any of the dinosaurs could survive an ice age unless they were able to travel to warmer areas where food was available. Woolly Mammoths were not dinosaurs but mammals.
the tree died about 65 million years ago along with many otherspecies of dinosaurs. They died by an asteroid in most scientifictheories including mine, and I'm a science teacher
The world's first creature was scientifically micro organisms. But some religions say otherwise.
There were many sub species of T rex such as the bronchi, thescroter, and the ankli. But the main T rex which dominated theJurrasic period and all of east Africa, Central Europe and SouthernSouth America was the astounding Tyranni Rexamo
Yes, in 1971. The human found has been dubbed "Malachite Man", butmany argue that he had been buried in a collapsed mine.
We don't know how the allosaurus died for sure. It may have been acomet or asteroid hitting the earth that brought their extinction.
Technically all of them. Genes are found in almost every cell'snucleus and are made from strands of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid). Amosquito drinks your blood which is made of red and white bloodcells.
Pterodactyls were animals and thus consumers.
Well one thing you need to remember, most prehistoric animal have adapted and evolved into more useful and dominant forms. While I'm sure no one believes that humans evolve from apes anymore, it is possible for animals to evolve and adapt to their needs. For example: some of the smaller reptiles...
Fossils of dinosaurs and mammals have been found in the same strata. Mammal bones have been found in the stomachs of some predatory dinosaurs.
If you die you will no longer be living in this world.
No. There were many type of sabre-toothed cats however.
First, it had really long claws to be able to kill its prey fairlyquickly. Second, it was very fast, so it could sneak up and kill its preyeven if the prey tried to run away. And third, it could jump fairly high so when it climbed on itsprey, it would be able to get it easier. Last, it had very good...
The Maiasaura and the Oviraptor did.
Type your answer here... A t rex was alive for 3,227
I think that it is USA. It is quite big and there have been mandiscoveries there.
There are several large craters in the earth and one of them mayhave killed them off.
Teeth, fore and back claws, physical body, tail armour, body armourand horns.
Whether the general mammoth population died out for climatic reasons or due to over hunting by humans is controversial. One theory suggests that mammoths may have fallen victim to an infectious disease. A combination of climate change and hunting by humans has been suggested as the most likely...
The saber tooth tiger has many remains depending on the species, Smiledontnas Nimbradious is found in the foothills of eastren oregon. Smiledoont and the larger cats are found in the La briear tar pits of Los Angleous calefornia, and the wendell fossil beds in siberia.
Animals that lived during the prehistoric period are called prehistoric animals
they have found fossils of sabers all around the world.
The most popular carnivore is probably the Tyrannosaurus Rex while the most popular herbivore is the Triceratops.
The oldest dinosaur types are known from rocks in Argentina and Brazil and are about 230 million years old. The most primitive of these types, Eoraptor , was a small meat-eating dinosaur. Because Eoraptor 's skeleton shows some advanced skeletal features, older dinosaurs may yet be found. http:...
Dinosaurs disappeared from the earth about 66 million yearsago. Jesus lived and died on earth about 2000 years ago, so, onearth, dinosaurs came first.
scientists really don't know how to answer that question yet, butmost people say it got killed by a meteorite, then so be it.
The length of their canines varied between species, but the longestthey could get is up to 20 inches.
No the ankylosaurus was about 10 feet tall and 20 feet long
Andrewsarchus, Baluchitherium (Indricotherium), Cave Lion,Chalicotherium , Coelodonta (woolly rhino), Dinictis, Dinohyus,Doedicurus, Elasmotherium, Glyptodon, Indricotherium, Mammoth,Mastodon, Megatherium, and Saber-toothed cats.
Certainly the most famous dinosaur is the t-rex, but there weremany other larger dinosaurs. The biggest carnivore is spinosaurus.The smallest is Microraptor. Deinonychus was well known for itsunique upright claw, and Triceratops has animpressive set of horns. The Parasaurolophus could use its...

From the trassic period to the cretaceous period (about 225 yearsago to 65 years ago)
No major geologic events I can recall took place during this time except a large mass of extinction. That is, if that's considered geologic.
The province that has the most dinosaur fossils is ALBERTA
Yes they hunt and live in a pack
how was the reaper helpful to farmers
we live in the common era c.e
Look for a claw in the top right corner
they leave there eggs behind they dont care for they have to grow up on there own with no support or protection.
The tyrannosaurus Rex was about 20 feet tall, the height of a two story building, when stretching to full height. In a normal walking posture, a tyrannosaurus Rex would walk horizontally to the ground, unlike a human, which would cause it to be about 12 feet at the shoulder, a little higher at the...

Triceratops are preys
The tyrannosaurus rex is a predator feeding on anything it could fit in its mouth
the triceratops guarded its babies by charging at predators andstomping its foot much like how a bull does when its going tocharge
Most likely the plant eaters died first, then the carnivores.
The Ichthyosaurus was a dolphin-like creature that was found inwater. Differences between the dolphin today and the Ichthyosauruswould be a longer snout and smaller dorsal fin.
yes, it had lots of hair, pretty warm in da snow
The only animals that would have chased mammoths would have been their predators. A wide variety of animals, including Dire wolves, flat faced bears, cave hyenas, American and European lions, and saber toothed cats would easily kill and eat an unprotected mammoth calf. The only animals that could...
Dinosaurs have been alive in the Mesozoic Era. The Mesozoic Era consist of three time periods the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous. The Triassic is the oldest part of the Mesozoic Era. The Cretaceous is the youngest part of the Mesozoic Era. The Triassic period had started 227 million years ago...
Stromatolites are formed through the trapping of sediments and the precipitation of calcium carbonate in response to the growth and metabolic activities of matlike cyanobacteria colonies. Due to the matlike growth of the cyanobacteria, laminar sedimentary structures are formed.
It looks like a Draciasourus but it a little bit smaller and it hasa thin tail at the end and when it is threatened it can swing itstail around and make a whip sound and scare its predators
The Late Triassic epoch was a part of the Triassic period of theMesozoic era. It was divided into, in chronological order, theCarnian, Norian, and Rhaetian ages.
Most dinosaurs died off about 65 million years ago. Most life on Earth ended 65 million years ago during what is called the Cretaceous-Paleogene extinction event. There is substantial scientific evidence of an asteroid or comet impact on Earth that caused or was the primary contributor to the...

All dinosaurs were different shapes and sizes. Try to be a bit morespecific.
It's the bone that makes them laugh when you tell them a joke.
Great model in NY's museum of natural history.
Good question. Not many people know the answer to that one, but I believe the current theory is that oxygen levels were higher. Nobody knows for sure, though.
Saber Toothed Tigers were endangered but they are extinct now.
