In Poland, archaeologists have found the remains of a giant dicynodont. A detailed description of this unique find was published in Science magazine, and she herself was called by scientists “epoch-making discovery”. What is the significance of this, without exaggeration, very loud events in world archeology?

It turns out that dicinodont is the “direct” ancestor of many modern mammals, including humans. Moreover, he existed in the time of dinosaurs, practically, as it turned out, in no way inferior to them.

Note that earlier, many researchers believed that the oldest representatives of our class were small warm-blooded animals that feed mainly on insects, e.g. 30 grams a monkey whose remains were once discovered in China. Such crumbs appeared about 200-250 million years ago and lived in parallel with the dinosaurs until they became extinct. And only after of this they began to actively evolve, turning, in the end ends in a person.

Unlike small warm-blooded monkeys, dicynodont is simply giant. The remains of this “ancestor found near the village of Lisovicia person “demonstrate an individual four and a half meters long and almost three meters high, and weighing at least nine tons. Find which Polish archaeologists have called the “Boyanus fox” proves that these animals existed together with dinosaurs, were no less powerful and dominant at that period of development fauna on Earth.

However, as Tomasz Sulej says (Tomasz Sulej) – Professor of the Warsaw Institute of Paleontology, it’s not clear how these different animals coexisted in that distant time and why dinosaurs suddenly died out, and the giants-dicynodonts in the next 150 million years became the dominant species on Earth animals?

Scientists still just find out all this (or at least try to find out), fortunately now they have material for such research. And this, scientists write, is the significance almost epoch-making finds near the village of Lisovicia in Poland …
