Archaeologists have found in America the last in the history of the Earth dinosaur
A group of scientists from Canada announced the discovery in Colorado of the remains of the hadrosaur, which lived after 700 thousand years after the mass extinction.
The General view is that the dinosaurs on Earth became extinct due to the fall of the asteroid on the Yucatan Peninsula. While there are many other theories which claim that the blame not the asteroid. Jetta Keller (Gerta Keller), the expert from Princeton, with their counterparts here for the first year finds more and more evidence that the death of the dinosaurs to blame for the fall of other cosmic bodies (the theory of “multiple drops”). The last drop in the dispute was the latest discovery in the history of planet dinosaur, according to the portal Membrana.
It was made in the formation hell Creek (Hell Creek Formation), which, incidentally, is only 13 centimeters below the K-T boundary (the layer of soil below the fall of the asteroid), is another proof of the correctness of the supporters of the transient of destruction of dinosaurs and wrong, scientists who adhere to notions of slow extinction.
The remains, perhaps, “the last flightless dinosaur in history” is a frontal horn 45 centimeters in length, which probably belonged to a Triceratops or torosaurus.
In their article, the authors write that their will nakedcapitalism the existence of the so-called three-meter gap. This zone (3 meters below the K-T boundary, corresponding to approximately 100 thousand years) known that it almost didn’t find the remains and footprints of dinosaurs. It was used by the supporters of the theory of gradual extinction as a proof of the correctness of his conclusions.
“This specimen shows us that until the fall of the asteroid terrible lizards on the planet was quite a lot, says Tyler Lyson (Tyler Lyson), the student paleontologist from Yale and lead author of the current article. It testifies to the fact that the blow was the cause of death of dinosaurs, not staged”.
The bones of the dinosaur were found just under the soil layer, which was formed after the asteroid impact. Another author of the work of Yale graduate student Stephen Chester (Stephen Chester) notes that the above multiple paleontologists find the remains of mammals, for which after the death of the dinosaurs was released various ecological niches (Photo: Tim Webster).
Proponents of the theory of the gradual disappearance of this opinion do not agree, as they believe that the detection of one bone may not put an end to years of debate. According to some experts, this find and nothing changes.
It turns out that you can reliably say only one thing: no one has yet proved the opposite, found the horn can be considered to belong to the last dinosaur on Earth.
