Scientists have found 66 million years old Dinosaur Fossilized Leg. It is said that dinosaurs existed on Earth millions of years ago.
It is believed that the fossils found of dinosaurs belonged only to when a devastating asteroid hit Earth caused a catastrophe. Due to this the existence of dinosaurs on earth had ended.
Dinosaur Fossilized Leg: Evidence of the existence of dinosaurs has been found for the first time:
Let us tell you that scientists believe that there were once giant dinosaurs on Earth. They have been giving some evidence from time to time that can confirm their point of view. But this is the first time they have found a dinosaur fossilized limb. If dinosaurs happened millions of years ago, then it means that this recovered dinosaur leg is also millions of years old.
According to scientists, this limb is 66 million years old. Surprisingly, this fossil is also safe for millions of years. Not only this but the skin of the limb is also attached to it.
What happened on the day when there was devastation on the earth?
It is believed that until about 66 million years ago, dinosaurs ruled the earth. No one has seen dinosaurs because at that time the human race did not exist. Therefore, whatever is talked about dinosaurs is done only on the basis of conjecture.
It is said that about 66 million years ago, one day a massive asteroid collided with a rock located in present-day Mexico on Earth.
The asteroid hit Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, due to which a huge crater was created there.
The center of this crater is near the Chicxulub city of Mexico so it is also known as the Chicxulub crater.
The structure of the Chicxulub crater measures 118 km wide and 20 km deep.
The impact of the asteroid’s collision with the rock was so strong that the rock turned to dust. This caused a severe dust storm. The dust storm was so strong that clouds of dust and carbon gases covered the sky. Due to this, the sunlight was not able to reach the earth. This situation lasted for almost a decade. This made the earth cold.
It is believed that due to all these reasons, all the creatures present on the earth at that time ended, including dinosaurs.
The difference of 30 seconds could have changed the result:
A BBC documentary states that had the asteroid hit Earth 30 seconds earlier or later, the result might have been different. Because then the situation would have been such that it would have
fallen into the waters of the Atlantic or the Pacific Ocean. In such a situation, it does not have such a devastating effect on the earth’s land that life ends on the earth.
Then maybe the dinosaurs would not have disappeared from the earth.
But if that were the case, how would the human race have arisen? Because if dinosaurs were alive, then perhaps the development of humans would not have been possible.
Dinosaurs existed for 165 million years:
Dinosaurs are believed to have ceased to exist about 66 million years ago. But scientists believe that they ruled the earth for about 165 million years before their extinction.
Although mankind has only been on Earth for about 2.5 million years.
Discovered fossils will reveal many secrets:
After the discovery of this fossil, scientists hope that it will now be possible to know what really happened 66 million years ago.
As we have already mentioned, this is the first time that scientists have found any dinosaur fossils.
Let us tell you here that this fossilized leg of dinosaurs was unearthed along with a series of important discoveries at the Tanis fossil site in North Dakota, US, which is known as the “Hell Creek Formation”.
The site, which was first discovered in 2008, is of particular importance to scientists because it appears to record in extreme detail events from the first minutes to a few hours after that asteroid impact.
University of Manchester paleontologist Robert DePalma said it was evidence that dinosaurs were wiped out when an asteroid struck Earth at the end of the Cretaceous period.
He has said that there is a plan to excavate more rapidly here because some more secrets can be found here.
It is also possible that new species of dinosaurs may also be discovered by excavation.
It is believed that during the dinosaur era, several species of dinosaurs existed of varying sizes, some small and some large. Dinosaurs have been depicted as very fierce creatures before us but not all dinosaurs were actually fearsome. Because it is believed that some of their species were also calm and herbivorous.
Eventually, it is a matter of joy that the researchers have been able to find some evidence of life that took place before that catastrophic event. Now it will be possible to pave a road to explore the world that was there before destruction.
