Cool! I wonder if it's a fluke, or some species died in different times... Hmmm....

Story shows just how much we still don't know about our ancient world.

More proof of evolution and it's complexities. Creationists will say that this disproves it, but they don't understand that science changes, as needed, when new evidence (such as this) comes along. Science does not ignore the facts in favor of doctrine that never changes and disregards facts and evidence.

This is another article that shows that, as new discoveries are made, we must analyse our beliefs and adapt. As new information arrives, new standards are set, especially in the past - periods where no records were kept and no humans were alive.
