rex. This dinosaur looked like a smaller, less muscular version of Tyrannosaurus. As an early member of the tyrannosaur family, Albertosaurus was the final design for the large meat-eating dinosaurs. It only had two fingers on its hands, which were at the end of short arms. It had long legs and it a wide skull with lots of power in its bite.
Cave Lion 5. Chalicotherium The cave lion (Panthera leo spelaea) was probably the biggest lion that ever lived. It was 25 percent bigger than lions today and was up to about 11.5 ft (3.5 m) long. was an early, herbivorous mammal from the Miocene. This forest browser was an ungulate with large, clawed feet (instead of hooves).
Claire Minton Clare Echterling English 102 August 30, 12 QCQ: Hitt, “Dinosaur Dreams: Reading the Bones of America’s Psychic Mascot” “Controversial scholarship has turned up a new interpretation of how the great-meat-eater lived, and it is so at odds with T. rex’s public persona that even scholars hate to talk about him anymore. In a sense, the scientific reality of the King of the Tyrant Lizards has laid bare our symbolic uses of him. So T. is hiding.” (Hitt, 109). The essay describes the typical American view of the T. rex as the “great-meat-eater” and “King of the Tyrant Lizards;” powerful, scary, a predator. But the theory about the true nature of the T. rex, developed by the “self credentialed iconoclast” Jack Horner, is quite at
There are many different reasons why extinction happens, some of these cause are natural but the majority of them are due to human activity such as deforestation and an increased amount of fossil fuels being used which then leads to global warming. Extinction has increased 100,000 times more than before humans were on earth. There currently is a mass extinction of species since the extinction of the dinosaurs 65 million years ago, some of the main causes of this are habitat destruction, invasive animals, population growth, pollution and over exploitation. Biodiversity is the variety of plants and animal life in the world or in a particular habitat which are affected negatively due to some activities that humans are causing such as climate change. My first piece of evidence in favour of human activity leading to extinction is ‘humans are driving animals to extinction faster than they can evolve ‘written by Juliette Jowit, (on Sunday the 7th of March 2010), the guardian newspaper, 15/01/15.
Areas further out toward South Russell and Ackley would be affected by falling debris and radiation, also. The effects of a one megaton bomb would be enormous. It can eliminate everything within a four mile radius in seconds. All houses and buildings would be crushed, and human fatality rate is 100%. The impact of the bomb would leave a crater between 370 ft and 600 ft long and winds up to 180 MPH.
There are many theories about what is going to happen, including: galactic alignment, prophecies of Armageddon, impossible scientific experiments, the Mayan-predicted apocalypse, and many more. Many scientists believe that galactic alignment in 2012 is going to bring natural and even cosmic disasters on earth. Galactic Alignment is when the sun is in position between the earth and the black hole in the center of the Milky Way galaxy. Many people believe that when the sun and earth become aligned with the black hole in the center of the Milky Way galaxy, this will bring about the end of the world in 2012 because it
Michael Gomez 11/28/11 In the short story, “A Sound of Thunder” by Ray Bradbury, the setting takes place in a time traveling company where people are given the opportunity to go back in time to the era of the dinosaurs and be able to kill one. Eckels and a few others take the opportunity and decide to go back in time and kill a tyrannosaurs rex. The usage of foreshadowing brings out the conflict where Travis (Group leader) kills Eckels. The constant threats said by Travis directed to Eckels, brings suspicion in the audience if he kills Eckels or not. Eckels as an hunter, is motivated to go back in time, not only be able to see one in his own eyes, but kill a T-rex.
The End Permian Oceanography 101 There are many theories about what caused the cataclysmic events that led to what is called The Great Dying. This event was so devastating that nearly all life on earth disappeared, and what life remained, clung to life on the edge. There had been periods where species had disappeared, but this one stands alone in that “51% of all marine families, 82% of all genera, an estimated 93-97% of all species” (End-Permian mass extinction (the Great Dying)). The most widely accepted and circulated theory is that the chain of events was caused by the impact of a large asteroid that resulted in elevated volcanic activity, a nuclear winter, and a great die off. But as science and technology have advanced,
Ardi is estimated to be 4.4 million years old and is considered to be one of the most primitive hominids, giving rise to the species Australopithecus, which in turn gave rise to Homo sapiens. She is the closest we’ve come to finding the last common ancestor of chimpanzees and humans. Since the skeleton did not contain useful material for dating methods, scientists measured the amounts argon gas in the ash layers the skeleton was found between. Ardi is the most complete of the Ardipithecus fossils found. Her skeleton includes her skull, teeth, arms, hands, pelvis, legs, and feet.
The female eagle weight range can be from 10 to 14 pounds and the weight for the male is 8 to 9 pounds. The size difference allows them to catch different sized prey. Their wing spans range from 72 to 90 inches (7 feet). Their height is 1m (3 feet). An adult Bald Eagle has over 7,000 feathers, but if you put all of them together they would weigh less than 21 ounces, or 30 feathers would weigh less then a penny.
