possibility for dinosour's

19 posts in this topic

is it possible for dinosours to live until these day...well there are many islands that are not explored and if they say that a comet killed all the dinosours, what about the other dinosours living in the sea, in the underground(if there is), and if theres some dinosours that could be living until now, what kind of dinosours would roam around...

Dinosaurs were large animals (in the theoretical AND physical sense) Large theropods and Sauropods/Titanosaurs could not survive now, as there is very little O2 compared to the cretaceous. Dinosaurs occupied a LARGE ecological niche. When the K-T disaster struck, the environment was so shaken up that it could not support dinosaurs anymore. Thus, they went extinct. The smaller, more adapted/advanced animals then evolved to take the place of dinosaurs and fill in the void...These were mammals.

So in basic terms, they probably don't exist anymore. I believe the last dinosaurs died around 65 MYA.

Dinosaurs did not live in the sea. All dinosaurs were land-dwelling creatures. Plesiosaurs, icthyosaurs, mososaurs, and the like were reptiles, but they were not dinosaurs. Nor were pterodons.

In fact, the K-T extinction was even more pronounced in the sea than on land. Furthermore, if dinosaurs or any other ancient form of life had survived in any great numbers, we would probably have found fossil evidence of it. There is no evidence to support dinosaurs existing after 65 mya.

Pilgrim's facts coupled with mine's show that there is no possibility for dinosaurs to exist anymore.

Dinosaurs did not live underground either.

Well since birds are modern descendants of Dinosaurs you could buy a pet bird, that's kind of close.

I know a lot of people say pretty much all animals taste like chicken or beef but I think they have defective tongues or just say what they hear others say.

Honestly, emus taste like alligators. SOUR.

I figure if something tastes like a reptile and looks like a dino with feathers, then it is a close dino desccendent at the very least.

Take the taste test yourself and try some of both meats and see.

Well, if my buddy frogfish, (who doubles as my insurance consultant and medical advice specialist) says that dinos are all dead, i'll take his word for it. course, i also think that the overwhelming evidence to support his claim adds emphasis to his point. oh, and there is no way i'm going to eat an emu. it looks way too mean, and kinda salty...

Theoretically, it may be possible...for years there have been sightings of what people think to be pterodactyls, and some native tribes in South America have always had legends of creatures found in rainforests...there have even been reported sightings of creatures whos features sound remarkably like a brontosaurus in this region, but there has never really been any conclusive proof, no evidence found that any such dinosaur still exists.

Actually, no. It is impossible. The ecosystem today just cannot support a population of breeding dinosaurs...Plus, the air today is very different from that of the Cretaceous...Much less O2

nice theory frog but you left out one thing..... evolution! if a group of dinosaurs ( most likely small dinosaurs ) survived the k-t event and lived to the modern day then over the many generations they would have adapted to the changing levels of O2 in the atmosphere. :yes: just like any animal would. ;)

This argument is self-refuting. If dinosaurs survived and evolved to fit the changing environment, there is very little chance they would still be recognizable as dinosaurs. Look at birds - they bear little resemblance to their archosaurian ancestors.

how so? :huh: granted if they had survived the K-T event they would be all new species of dinosaurs but they would still be dinosaurs. birds were only a branch off of the dinosaurs just like reptiles were a branch off of the amphibians.

It is true that birds represent only a small portion of the dinosaur line. However, to have survived the K-T extinction and subsequent environmental changes, the creature would have had to undergo a dramatic change. This is not a crocodile or coelocanth, whose environmental niches have remained largely unchanged. The dinosaurs would have had to undergo extreme changes to survive. The creatures reported in the present, meanwhile, are so similar to known dinosaurs that they are easily recognized as such. Such similarities are extremely unlikely and probably impossible.
