Fact of the Day: American Dinosaur

While the famous T-Rex is known across the world, fossils of the mighty dinosaur have only been found in North America. Mostly in the western parts of the United States and Canada.

  1. It's a particularity of all dinosaurs: some lived only on some parts of the world which was not exactly like now!

  2. It is said that there were not horses either when Columbus arrived in America. You have different kind of animals in your continent. Kisses:)

    1. ironically horses evolved in North America (up near Alaska if I'm not mistaken), but all the descendants went to the other parts of the world and any left died out.

      One of the first debunks of the bible came from the fact that Columbus never found horses here. According to scripture, animals were suppose to be spread out all across the world. But then a man questioned why Native Americans would bring rattlesnakes but not horses?
