In 1977, a farmer was plowing his field on a plateau high in the Andes mountains when he stumbled upon a giant fossilized skeleton. How did this giant marine reptile end up high in the Andes Mountains?

1:38 Kronos ate his children because he was paranoid that his children would one day overthrow him. And they did overthrow him......but only because he ate them in the first place

I'd like to see a video just on the paramos. You tell us a couple creatures that live there, but we don't get any understanding of the environment itself (climate, distinguishing characteristics other than altitudes etc.) Extra credit for telling us how the plants and animals evolved over time during the uplift of the Andes.

I find just sitting on the ground is a great way to get your head in the sky... although this was far more impressive, they got their entire body in the sky without any magic or imagination, to bad they won’t be enjoying it do to them being a bit uhh... dead, cause honestly, there were some better rib ticklers in this video than that skeleton would be able to handle, probably enough to start a riot from the Olympians.

I have been to Villadeleiva and seen all the museums with the Kronosaurus' fossils (there are more not shown in the video), and it is AMAZING how bug that thing was, it is also incredible to see all the other species that can be found there. It is also a beautiful place to go, amazing video

Fun fact about the Kronosaurus: Kronosaurus was one of the largest sea reptiles. It measured up to 33ft (10m) in length. Even its head, at 9ft (3m) long, was bigger than a man. This monster could open its jaws wide like a crocodile and grasp prey with teeth as big as bananas.

In the closing titles, they refer music by APM. Associated Production Music is a "stock music" company that sells licenses to use music from their library.

Do we know why animals are so much smaller today? Even a blue whale which is the biggest species on earth if I remember correctly is tiny in comparison to these guys.
Arizonii پیش 6 ماه
As for insects, in the Carboniferous there was more oxygen in the air, thus why there used to be giant insects, but most died out after the Carboniferous Rainforest Collapse.
Arizonii پیش 6 ماه
The reason life in the past seems so much larger is because Megafauna fossilizes easier then smaller animals, due to them being larger and having more bones. Smaller animals are generally found, but only in certain circumstances, such as in shale, conceptions, etc. or amber, amber is a very good look into small Mesozoic fauna.
Arizonii پیش 6 ماه
@Rahul 141 arguably. We never know if we will find something bigger, and a few scientists argue that some sauropods were bigger, but yeah, for now they remain the largest.

There is a magnificent skeleton of a Kronosaurus at the Louis Agassiz Museum of Comparative Zoology at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. It's in the same room with a Coelacanth, found in the late 1930s off Madagascar and thought extinct for about a million years. It's the fish with muscular lobes on its find thought to have evolved into limbs for walking. There's also a full head skeleton from a triceratops While there don't miss the glass flowers exhibit in an adjoining section

The Andes have a significant effect on wine making as well. There is a root louse called Phylloxera that kills all old world wine grapes (Vitis vinifera) by eating their roots, so they must be grafted onto newworld grape (V. labrusca) root stock everywhere this louse is found. Thanks to some bad scientific practices in the 1500's, it got out in Europe and has managed to spread to every corner of the planet, save for two places. It could not cross the ocean to Antarctica and it couldn't make it over the Andes mountains to Chile. Now, Chile is the only place in the world you can grow ungrafted V. vinifera without building an underground barrier and shipping in hundreds of tones of sterilized soil (to produce enough wine for yourself, not for sale).
