The wild humanist Baldo Raptorials, he’s coming for you.
Evolution has created some incredible creatures,
and many of them, unfortunately, are endangered
and need to be kept safe in the wild.
However, there were some creatures
that existed in the past that were so monstrous.
It’s a good thing that they disappeared
because they literally could have ended our world.
Here are 10 extinct creatures that could have destroyed the world.
Number 10 is the Titanoboa.
We can all count our blessings that the titanoboa is long gone,
because it was as long as a school bus
and weighed as much as a small rhino.
是的 我知道我知道 但我正在尝试不同的食物呢 嘶嘶嘶……
Yeah, I know I know, but I’m trying different diet. Sss…
Boa constrictors grow up to 4.2 meters long
and weigh up to 45 kilograms,
while anacondas can grow up to 6 metres long
and weigh up to 227 kilograms,
but the Titanoboa was the largest snake ever
at 15 meters long and weighed 1134 kilograms.
Its fossil was discovered in 2002
in a coal mining region in northern Colombia
where it was no doubt king of the jungle 58 million years ago——
1 million years after the dinosaurs died off.
This Paleocene epoch monster ate just about everything
in its path from fish to crocodiles,
using the same hunting method as its tiny cousin the boa.
It would wrap its long muscly body around and asphyxiate
无论是谁 只要入侵了它的领地 就会被吃掉
whatever trespassed in its swamp, finishing them off in its stomach.
I’m not gonna lie,
Sometimes,I’m really hungry, and I do the same with food.
我只要 吃进去 然后消化
I’m just like inhale it and then it just digests later.
Children, chew your food.
number 9 is the Liopleurodon
Swimming during the late Jurassic era
was a dangerous game with the
Liopleurodon swimming around with massive jaws
filled with row upon row of Razor-sharp teeth.
Don’t mind me, I’m the Liopleurodon.
It was the apex predator of Europe 150 million years ago,
growing up to nine meters in length and 1588 kilograms
based on the fossils discovered in France back in 1873.
And not only was it massive,
but it swam fast, with four broad, flat,long flippers
that allowed it to accelerate after its prey
and the forward positioning of its nostrils gave it a keen sense
of smell that could detect prey from great distances.
One major disadvantage of this sea creature was its lack of gills,
so it had to surface like a whale in order to gulp air,
which would have been great for an Instagram picture
if it didn’t devour you
before dropping back below into its watery domain.
Number eight is the Megalania Prisca
In Australia a place filled
with creatures that can kill you the Magalania Prisca
was the largest terrestrial lizard that ever lived
at five metres long called the devil dragon.
Fossil evidence of this creature is scant,
but molecular evidence indicates that they
terrorized the Australia continents forests woodlands
and river lands during the Early Cretaceous era.
100 million years ago their remains are often found
with fossils of large animals including kangaroos.
Indicating that they hunted larger prey that may
have even included the nearly extinct pygmy elephants.
Now while modern humans are in theory safe
a fossil was discovered on a Queensland farm
that dates back only 300 years ago.
So get ready to battle this I’m coming at you.
I’m the devil dragon.
Number seven is the Dunkleosteus
was the largest and meanest fish that ever swam
with an armored head that grew up to ten meters in length.
dang, I thought I had a big skull.
It was a massive apex predator
that could eat whatever it could get its sharp jaws around
with a bite force estimated to be nearly 2 metric tons.
But it likely just opened its mouth
and let the vacuum suck in any prey stew enough to go near it.
The only predator That would have been a threat to the Dunkleosteus
would be another Dunkleosteus
因为有些化石显示 他们会相互斗争 同类相食
As some fossils indicate that they engaged in combat and possibly cannibalism.
But there’s not a lot of fish in the sea today.
Ow,bit your fin.
Number six is the Arthropleura
Imagine an army of Arthropleura super centipedes
taller than the biggest NBA players at 2.6 meters in length
tapping they’re not all so tiny feet all over humanity.
By comparison the largest of the modern brethren is
the Amazonian giant centipede that can grow up to 33 centimeters.
But luckily the largest arthropod in history can not exist today
at least not their staggering size
because the nemuri’ n age 313 million years ago
had very peculiar environmental factors
where the Earth’s atmosphere was 36% oxygen versus 21% today.
The atmospheric oxygen content
Created an explosion in the size of flora and fauna back
那时候 欧洲 北美洲和亚洲还是一个大陆
when Europe North America and Asia were one landmass.
But by the stefani and age seven million years ago
oxygen leveled off
Reducing that terrifying size of centipedes that could easily enslave us all.
This is a terrifying horror creature that pooped nightmare fuel.
I’m so glad it’s not alive.
Number five is the Jaekelopterus
The colossal sea scorpion called the Jaekelopterus
grew up to 2.5 meters in length
with spiked claws containing long sharp teeth
measuring 46 centimeters.
This 390 million year old crocodile sized
water bug made mincemeat out of fish and cannibalized its own.
In the coastal swamp waters of what is now Germany,
its fossils were discovered in 2007.
But back when it existed it had no predators
as vertebrates had yet to evolve into contenders.
so anything smaller than it
which was just about everything became its next meal.
To add to the nightmare is that
in between its claws near its mouth
the Jaekelopterus had two smaller folding arms,
that could shoot out and grab ahold of dinner
like a radioactive praying mantis from some long-forgotten Godzilla movie.
噢 对 我有点饿了
I’m kind of hungry
Number four is sarcosuchus
The sarcosuchus’s named after the super croc,
makes even the most crocodile infested waters seem safe
like a kiddie pool with a lifeguard.
It was the largest crocodile to ever live,
growing up to 12 meters long
and covered almost head-to-toe in armored plates
that made it practically invincible.
Its long narrow snout
was filled with massive teeth and a bulbous tip to its nose called Ebola,
its purpose unknown but likely
enhanced its all the factory senses allowing it to
sniff out prey and use it for blunt-force trauma.
Hey,I’m gonna kill you with my nose.
They ran things, and what is now the Sahara Desert,
but back during the Cretaceous period,
100 million years ago when it was lush tropical
and full of delicious things to violently kill.
It could literally take its dinosaur contemporaries
and snap its neck like a twig.
Number three is the Aegirocassis
There were no exterminators
during the Ordovician era 480 million years ago
except evolution back when the giant cockroach called the Aegirocassis
swam about a long-gone see where Morocco is now.
These ancient ancestors of the cockroach
and other arthropods like shrimp and butterflies grew up to
two point one meters in length and were named after aegir
a giant sea creature from the Norse mythology.
They used their modified front appendages as a spiky net
to sort and consume various plankton’s
which allowed it to evolve into such a large creature.
Just as modern
whale sharks have grown so large from their filter-feeding
and just like the modern cockroach that humanity adores.
There were a lot of them so imagine an invasion
of 2 meter sized cockroaches in your kitchen
嘿 我是巨型奇虾 不能杀我
Hey I’m a cockroach can’t kill me.
I might kill you though.
Number two is the meganeuropsis.
Dragonflies today are beautiful and graceful
as they flit around the air just making our picnics lovely.
But the meganeuropsis was a terrifying predator
their bodies were roughly 47 centimeters long
with a wingspan of 75 centimeters
and were nimble in the air using their powerful.
Mandibles loaded with teeth to conquer large prey
that put up a fight.
The United States particularly the plains states like
Kansas and Oklahoma
was its domain 300 million years ago.
During the late Permian era the meganeuropsis enjoyed an oxygen-rich atmosphere
that made it super-sized making it the lord
of the sky long before pterodactyls birds and bats evolved
Okay,this one is terrifying,
but imagine that you could tame it just riding around on it.
嘿 嘿 梅根和罗伯说上帝带我去公园
Hey,hey Megan and Rob says to God take me to the park.
好啊 走 谢谢
and Number one is the Megalodon
Great white sharks ain’t got nothing on its
older near identical-looking ancestor the Megalodon.
That was two to two and a half times longer
and could weigh as much as a commercial airplane
at 100 metric tons
Unlike many ancient species limited to location
the biggest shark in history could be found almost anywhere.
Even your backyard,be thankful.
It may have also had the most powerful bite in history
greater than the Tyrannosaurus Rex that could crush a car instantly
The Megalodon ruled the Earth’s water until as recently as
1.5 million years ago.
But its demise was likely brought on by the ocean cooling
the disappearance of abundant prey its size
That was required to thrive
and a new contender the Orca
who out competed them by hunting and social packs
R.I.P super jaws you will be missed
so that was ten extinct creatures that could have destroyed the world
