On February 12, 1958, the miners made an unexpected discovery: during exploration time for uranium deposits in the North American state Utah was prevented from moving down by a huge petrified tree. They are decided to clear the path with dynamite. Taking out the debris discovered a cavity in the rock, inside of which, to its to a great surprise, we met a living toad! The explosion seemed quite she was not hurt, and after that she lived another 28 days. However gels we will take into account the age of the geological layer, from which, apparently, this amphibian appeared, then its age can already be calculated several million years old. A photo from open sources Is it a “living fossil” or modern animal? The cavity may have formed during explosion, and the toad slipped into it shortly before the miners. Researcher Eduardo Mendoza in his “Archives of the Incredible” indicates a similar incident that occurred in Blois, France, in 1851 the year the workers found another living toad inside the rock. When her released, the amphibian tried to retire, but was caught and, enclosed in the same piece of breed, sent for study. Interestingly, finding themselves in the dark part of their tiny cave, the toad behaved calmly, but getting into the light, tried to escape. Researcher Charles Berlitz recalled in his book The World of Strange phenomena “and several other similar cases. In April 1865 there was the toad is long-lived, freed from the cavity in limestone formed over 200 million years ago! This a piece of limestone was at a depth of more than one and a half meters from surface. The toad also left an imprint of her body on the breed and died a few days later. In the article of the magazine “Say Identific American, dedicated to Gaines’ toad, tells about the discovery the worker Moses Gaines, who discovered a toad inside the stone, moreover, “it seemed that the stone simply melted around it. “It was a copy of 8 centimeters in length, with unusually big eyes. All these findings were brought by Dr. Frank. Backland on the idea of experimentally simulating long-lived toads. He enclosed six toads in limestone and sandstone. He buried both pieces in garden and when the next year I dug them, then, to my surprise, discovered that the toads inside the limestone were alive and even put on weight! But in his subsequent experiments all the toads were dying. In 1862, the Frenchman Segan imprisoned 20 toads in a cast, allowed he was petrified and buried it in the ground. The story tells that through 12 years old when he dug plaster, four out of twenty toads were alive. Lizard before Judge In 1853, Judge Hogton of New Mexico, USA sent to the Smithsonian Institution in Washington a small lizard enclosed inside a stone block. The animal lived two days, and no one could explain how she penetrated the stone and managed to survive there. However the most incredible story was set out 9 February 1856 in the British newspaper Illustrated London News. IN article tells of a find made in Kulmon, Haut-Mans (France). This case was retold by Jacques Bergier and Ivan Sanderson in The Book of the Inexplicable, written in 1971. The workers who laid the railway tunnel connecting St. Dizier and Nancy, extracted from the earth a huge stone block and saw that inside it is a living creature absolutely monstrous kind. This creature was described as “giant bat. Its wings reached 3.2 m wide, at she had a very large neck and large and sharp teeth. This bird rested on four huge legs connected by two films, and which ended with four clawed fingers. Her skin was lead-black, oily in appearance, and its analysis entrails revealed only the presence of fluid, which turned out to be clear water. “Once in the light, a strange creature began to wave with her webbed wings, proving that she is still alive. However she soon passed away with a hoarse cry. On a rocky cavity in which she was imprisoned, a complete imprint of her body was preserved, which indicates that she was inside during education stone. The creature was transported to Gray, where a naturalist specializing in paleontology, no doubt identified her as a representative the genus pterodactylus anas, a flying dinosaur of the Jurassic period, i.e. who lived on Earth about 65 million years ago. Considering the geological age of the layer in which the strange creature was found, its age should not exceed 1 million years, which gives reason to assume – it still outlived its time. Many researchers, including the Belgian professor of zoology Bernard Aivelmans (deceased in 2001), believe that there are species prehistoric animals that have survived to this day; among them monkeys and other land animals, marine iguanas and prehistoric birds. In fact, there are many stories, both ancient and modern, in which encounters with similar giant birds and even their attacks on people. But in our cases, we are clearly talking about really living creatures that somehow survived to this day. How im managed to stretch your life for millions of years? Millennial bonsai In the plant kingdom, we also meet amazing centenarians. Some plants live for several thousand years, which, for example, we can safely say about the pinus conifer longoeva, which has been growing in California for 5,000 years! But also we we can also meet artificially preserved specimens, like, this, for example, happened in Central China, and more precisely – in the tomb of the fourth emperor of the Shang-Yin dynasty (1700-1066 years before n e.). In his funeral chamber, a unique bonsai has been preserved, who lived 3600 years thanks to an amazing system automatic watering. Attempts at Scientific Explanations that many animals hibernate during the winter allows them to reduce their heart rate, respiration and body temperature, by decreasing metabolism. This is about hibernation, which is the body’s protective mechanism in under nutritional conditions or at extreme temperatures. At some reptiles, such as crocodiles and amphibians, fall into hibernation during periods of intense heat, not cold. Birds on the other parties do not know how to arrange hibernation; however, some of they are able to enter a state of lethargy in especially cold nights, for example, when they were unable to migrate warm edges to the left. The only living creatures known to science capable of living huge periods of time are bacteria. In fact, the most the oldest organism on the planet is a bacterium of age 250 million years, which most of them spent being “buried” in a salt crystal. As we can see in cases with toads, reptiles or birds, science cannot give such explanations long hibernation. In any case, usually processes start in extreme climatic conditions and end when the ambient temperature becomes normal. With another hand, these living things were enclosed in cavities or burrows, completely covered with stone, from which the question follows: how do they get there hit?
