An international group of scientists described a new species, Machimosaurus rex . from the family of teleosaurus, fossil marine crocodiles of the Jurassic period. The paper was published in Cretaceous Research . Briefly about it it is spoken in the press release of the University of Alberta.
In 2014 a group of scientists discovered in the South of Tunis the well-preserved remains of a giant prehistoric reptile that lived 130 million years ago. The fossils were discovered near the town of Tataouine.
The researchers found almost completely preserved skull of reptiles, a few teeth, dorsal vertebrae, ribs, fragments of gastralia, the humerus. In addition, in the excavations, perhaps, are the fossils of four other adults Machimosaurus rex .
The length of the preserved part of the skull of the reptile was 134 cm. Scientists reconstructed the skull on the basis of known data about other members of the genus Machimosaurus and estimated the total length of the skull as rex M. 155 — 160 cm. The length of the skull, you can judge the size of the entire specimen. According to scientists, the length of the reptile was about ten meters, it was the largest representative of crocodylomorphs that time and the largest known representative of the suborder saltwater crocodiles thalattosuchia.

Scientists and archeology tell us emphatically that they know all about our origin and history. In truth, it is not so. Every year it opens new facts that expand incredibly familiar, cozy, but very narrow limits of the modern world.
Richard Thompson . American scholar, author of many articles on mathematics, Geology and physics, began to collect all the discarded science data concerning the prehistoric past of mankind, he was a member of the spiritual Institute’s Bhakti-Vedanta and adhered to those beliefs at the history that were described in ancient Indian Vedic treatises . namely that humanity existed for a very, very long time.
In collaboration with writer Michael Cremo, he was the impressive one that explained and analyzed this data, most of which are ignored or not recognized by modern science.
After nine years of work the book was published in 1993 under the title ” Forbidden archaeology “. It was one of the most amazing books of the decade. And, admittedly, remarkable for the restraint and moderation of his judgment. As the authors found, among the findings of geologists, archaeologists and paleontologists there is evidence that humans in their modern form have lived many millions – or decadelong years ago in Europe, Continue reading
The territory of Adygea was once the bottom of an ancient sea-lake the Paratethys which existed on the earth 25 million years ago.
According to the Professor of the Adyghe state University Igor Wolfhound . The paratethys seized the Black, Azov and Caspian seas, the area from Paris to Altai.
Millions of years ago undoubtedly was dominated by a subtropical climate. Therefore, scientists have no doubt: Lagonaki plateau in the past is a piece of barrier reef. This is evident in the fossilized remains of marine animals: ancient dolphins, sea turtles and whales found in the region of the plateau.
Increasingly in lowland areas of Ciscaucasia scientists discover remnants of burial of mammoths, bones of blue whales. Archaeologists in Adygea, prompted by a local fisherman discovered and described several burials of bones of mammoth: Tusk with a diameter of 24 cm, thigh and backbone of a major 50-year-old male mammoth.
“The question arises: how the blue whales and mammoths trapped in the Caucasus mountains? One hypothesis: a whale could be abandoned giant tsunami waves in the Wake of a major disaster described in the Bible as the flood. Continue reading
