What do you mean? That the animal world can adapt to changes? That the world evolved from rain forest to arid grassland or move? Or did Noah loaded them on his ark?

The smaller creatures were thought to have been carried into the cave by a predator such as an owl, while the larger ones, including a 2.2-metre (7.2-feet), 180-kilogram (396 pounds) mega kangaroo, probably tumbled into it through a hole.

Then again, maybe it was a case of a larger predator dragging or carring them all in the cave for a meal. Including the mega kangaroo since they only found one fossilized skelton so far.
