From article:

Quote:Camels roamed the icy Arctic of Canada? That's exactly what paleontologist learnt after discovering 30 bone fragments of giant camels in Ellesmere Island in Canada, according to a report released Tuesday.

Natalia Rybczynski, a paleontologist at the Canadian Museum of Nature in Ottawa, made the discovery of the bone fragments and after piecing them together, they discovered these camels were a third larger than any living today. The discovery, reported online March 5 in Nature Communications, suggests modern camels most likely descended from a cold-dwelling ancestor.

I question the general assumption that felines are inherently deficient in the area of grammar and sentence structure.

Camels are pretty hardcore so it only makes sense they would originate from Canada. LoL

this planet was a lot smaller then
Insects were the size of condors
as the planet gains mass through excreta Volcanism photosynthesis and stardust and other celestial bombardments
the gravity increases making life difficult for mega fauna or so says a segment of academia
but looking at videos of Giraffes drinking in what seems to be a very uncomfortable posture I tend to agree some
also there are those that think earth expansion is idiotic and the hold to the tetctonics dogma why is it that ancient cities are underground or underwater?

I love those Pangæa theories, what a place this was back then. A totally alien planet from the one we know today.
