Newly Discovered Prehistoric Bird


Still Waters

Recommended Posts

The North Pole wasn’t always a winter wonderland. Rewind 90 million years, and scientists think it was probably as warm as parts of Florida.

A new clue supporting that idea is a fossilized wing bone belonging to a newly discovered prehistoric bird found in the Canadian Arctic. The duck-size creature looked like a cross between a sea gull and a cormorant, but with a beak full of teeth. It could both fly and dive, and it most likely lived alongside turtles, crocodilelike reptiles and a whole lot of fish.

It was warmer back then because of all those people driving their Escalades.

Yeah all those Prius owners don't realize they will be responsible for the next ice age. :P
