This lil guy is great.

Is it a lizard with two little legs up front? I have heard of this sort oof thing before, but I cannot recall any resolution.

Or is it a standard snake eating a frog? Hmmm. I would think the frog—s head would be going in first, no?

 

 

Argentavis the Largest Bird that Ever Flew

Email: mothlightmedia@outlook.com

Argentavis was probably the largest bird ever to fly by a large margin, possably being twice as large as the second largest bird, paleogornis. This video answers questions like, how was such a large question able to get into the air? what did they eat? and how did they get so big?

Late Quaternary prehistoric birds – Video Learning – WizScience.com

Wiz Science™
Sep 29, 2015

“Prehistoric birds” are various taxa of birds that have became extinct before recorded history, or more precisely, before they could be studied alive by ornithologists. They are known from subfossil remains and sometimes folk memory, as in the case of Haast’s eagle from New Zealand. Birds are generally believed to have evolved from feathered dinosaurs, and there is no real dividing line between birds and dinosaurs except of course that the former survived the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event and the latter did not. For the purposes of this article, a “bird” is considered to be any member of the clade Neornithes, that is the bird lineage as exists today. The other lineages of the Aves also became extinct at the end of the Cretaceous. Taxon extinctions taking place before the Late Quaternary happened in the absence of significant human interference. Rather, reasons for extinction are stochastic abiotic events such as bolide impacts, climate changes, mass volcanic eruptions etc. Alternatively, species may have gone extinct due to evolutionary displacement by successor or competitor taxa – it is notable for example that in the early Neogene, seabird biodiversity was much higher than today; this is probably due to competition by the radiation of marine mammals after that time. The relationships of these ancient birds are often hard to determine, as many are known only from very fragmentary remains and due to the complete fossilization precludes analysis of information from DNA, RNA or protein sequencing.

Cameras Capture Bizarre Thunderbird Shadow During US F1 Grand Prix

NowYouKnow
Jan 1, 2018

A bizarre image captured by video cameras during the United States Grand Prix in Austin Texas appears to show a huge bird zooming around the racing circuit. On lap 48 of the race, the shadowy figure of the bird was visible to viewers at home who noted that it seemed enormous compared to the Formula One vehicles. No one has been able to identify what species of bird could have cast the shadow due to the speed of its flight over the circuit. However, it’s incredibly large size suggests that it is a very rare bird indeed with some Twitter uses suggesting that it might even be a Thunderbird.

Is this pterodactyl sighting proof of dinosaurs being around and alive in recent times and helping the creationist argument against evolution? Creationism or evolution are true but not both according to some apologists. This is an educational video with a biblical worldview but also with good taste and nice to all. Enjoy and if you have any mystery stories please email me and my email is at the end of this video.

Vietnam War Rock Apes – Bigfoot or Big Fraud?

Mark Felton Productions
May 23, 2020

Many American GIs during the Vietnam War reported encounters with large unknown primates they nicknamed ‘Rock Apes’. Were they lying or mistaken – this video presents evidence dating back to the early 19th century for the existence of the Rock Ape, encountered many times during the French colonial period, and also includes more recent physical evidence discovered by Vietnamese scientists.

7 Wild Children Found Living With Dangerous Animals

TheRichest
Oct 1, 2019

Amazing stories of wild animals that saved and protected young children from danger. These lost kids were actually found by rescuers to have been living with wild animals. Talk about a real life Jungle Book!

If you thought that you had it tough growing up, at least you still had a roof over your head, electricity, running water and basic human interaction. These kids had none of that. Somehow though, miraculously, they managed to survive in the wild with nothing more than stray animals as companions to guide them.

Folks, welcome to the real-life Jungle Book

I could do without the corny style and insertions, but, all in all, this is actually quite fascinating. And many were previously unknown to me.

The last one is very recent and, after careful analysis, was undoubtedly Bigfoot.

Aldabra white-throated rail bird

An extinct bird just ‘evolved itself’ back into existence

The Aldabra hasn’t existed in almost 100,000 years. Now it’s back

By Thomas Shambler
18 May 2020

The Aldabra white-throated rail bird was declared extinct, a victim of rising sea levels almost 100,000 years ago.

However, the flightless brown bird has recently been spotted – leaving scientists scratching their heads as to how – and why – the species has come back to life.

According to research in the Zoological Journal of Linnean Society, the re-incarnated Aldabra bird is a product of ‘iterative evolution’. That’s when old genes thought to have died out re-emerge at a different point in time.

That means that while a bird’s ancestors might have disappeared, that DNA still remains – and provided the environment is right, there’s nothing to stop those ancient genes from replicating in modern times.

So identical species can indeed produce multiple, slightly evolved offshoots, throughout the course of their species’ history.

But don’t get your hopes up that this means dinosaurs and wooly mammoths will be popping up next. This scientific phenomenon only occurs within species that are nearly identical to their ancestors.

While iterative evolution has previously occurred in species such as turtles, it has never been seen in the realm of birds.

“We know of no other example in the rails, or of birds in general, that demonstrates this phenomenon so evidently,” said paleobiologist David Martill, in a statement.

“Only on the Aldabra, which has the oldest paleontological record of any oceanic island within the Indian Ocean region, is fossil evidence available that demonstrates the effects of changing sea levels on extinction and recolonization events.”

2020 was already an interesting and confusing year. Looks like now we have to contend with re-materializing birds, as well.

This is fascinating. And rather exciting, too. At least, to me it is. I have always loved this sort of thing; and the more exotic and rare the occurrence, the more I like it. Because discovery and new knowledge is what it’s all about. accompanied always by renewed wisdom, of course.

 

 

Front Yard Fauna

Various birds and a squirrel enjoy the ingestion of nutrients available in my front yard at ~10:30am on Sundae, May 24, 2020. Sadly, the resident chipmunk didn’t attend the festivities. Shot on a Samsung Galaxy S7 edge.

Lookin’ out my front door…

Phone cameras are so lame. Skinny little wide angle miniframes with no control of focal length. I dunno, I was trained on Arriflex, Eclair and Bolex cameras. Real cameras. I would like to get a real video camera, but I am not in that paygrade. Oh, hey, I could break out my Lumix. I hope it still works. That’s if I can find it…
