Is it just me or is something off with the portrayal of tool use. If I am using a sharp tool to scrap hide, why would I bring the tool towards my mouth? The area you would be scraping would be from the left hand to the mouth not side to side. Wouldn't it? And you would scrape towards your left hand, who wants to hit them selves in the mouth as indicated by these examples? Alternatively, could these marks be made by early versions of eating tools. We know in recorded history that a knife was the most common tool for eating in early history. And I seem to remember evidence of more primitive tools being used the same way. Wouldn't that fit both hand use and how the marks are made better then what is being described here? Just asking, if anyone has answers to this perspective feel free to point out any errors in my thinking.

Can I convince you fine ladies and gentlemen to do a video on mythology, folklore and it's possible connection to early encounters between humans and prehistoric megafauna? I vaguely recall a great lakes tribal folk story about a giant beaver that was on a rampage and a warrior that fought and hunted the giant beaver, the battle lasting a few days and incidentally creating the great lakes according to this vaguely recalled piece of folklore. I think such a video would be interesting from a archaeological and anthropological point of view.

If we wanna get really loose with the term "lizard" then the basal amniotes, their reptiliomorph ancestors and even the earliest sauropsids and synapsid pelycosaurs were basically lizards, too.

I dont get rafting as a common method wouldnt you have to have atleast 1 male and 1 female that sexually mature and happen to land in a livable habitat. Then because of this, the founder effet, there should be one species you could track back to that it is more related too than any other right and wouldnt all the descendants of the rafted couple even with new speciation would be quite similar?

So lignin came about allowing plants to turn into trees, but at the time there was nothing to break the lignin down, so during the Carboniferous the trees and plants ran rampant over the world but couldn't rot since nothing yet could digest lignin, allowing all the plant detritus to build up eon after eon layer upon layer until a lot of it got buried and turned into the huge expansive coal seams on Earth today... Then finally fungi and microbes caught up and became capable of digesting lignin, and thus the Carboniferous ended and has never been repeated, since the conditions have permanently changed with the addition of lignin digesters in the ecosphere... Later! OL J R :)

I'm surprised more plants didn't use "long horizontal stalks / roots" which would create new "plants" around, and grow sideways like this. - I think some trees do this, and mushrooms, and so on... I expected that to be one of the first, especially without any animals around... - It's just growing parts that are not completely dependent on the original "start" part of the plant...

3:10 So the Avalon Explosion is the exposition that failed? Some mass extinction event killed off 100% of the complex life some time before the Cambrian Expulsion? Perhaps that extinction event caused the Cambrian Explosion in the first place.

But they still have their arms, chickens, ostrichs and other birds have wings which are probably the t-rex's arms in the present day. They didn't completely lose them, they just evolved into wings over millions of years. And can I just say it; chickens are the closest living relative to the t-rex. I'm not even kidding.

3:58 Following the theory, that evolution only works when every step of developement brings some kind of benefit, Odontochelys seems to be very strange to me. What benefit does it have, to have an armored belly combined with an unprotected back? Most if not all animals that carry only partial armor on their body are armored a lot stronger on their backs than on their belly. No matter if it is a catfish or a hedgehog. So, what was so different in the lifestyle of Odontochelys, that an armored belly combined with unprotected back gave it an advantage in survival?

🙄 Paleontologists always look for an explanation for the extinction of species, when the most obvious answer is in the genes, no species lasts forever and it should not be assumed that its extinction is due to the confrontation with other species or climatic changes, such things can cause the decline of the individuals of a species, but not its extinction, that theory must be reevaluated. Not even the 'civilized man' with overfishing, excessive hunting, the exploitation of the environment, climate change and the occupation of space on earth by its 7 billion individuals has caused the mass extinction of large species on the planet yet.
