How to survive mass extinction

4 posts in this topic

It is impossible to predict exactly which species would or would not survive a global catastrophe, but it is understood what attributes will contribute to their fate

That the last of the non-avian dinosaurs died out some 65.5 million years ago is not controversial. That this occurred largely owing to a dirty great asteroid smashing into the sea off of Mexico is also not in doubt. What remains the subject of much discussion, however, is why they went and other animals did not, or, more specifically, how do you survive a mass extinction?

It's really impossible to predict. Those species most suited to adapt to the new environment would be the ones most likely to survive.

For each catastrophic scenario, different species would survive.
