The Caucasus was once the bottom of the ocean

A photo from open sources

In the Sharoy district of the Chechen Republic in the mountains of the Caucasus discovered fossils of an ancient mollusk that lived 100 million years ago, media reported. One more confirmation of the fact that the Caucasus was once a seabed, was the find of a huntsman Sharoy district of the Chechen Republic, Isa Akbulatov. Isa’s attention attracted by a huge strange block, the huntsman photographed her and photo drove to the department of physical geography of the Chechen State University. The find turned out to be very interesting, and scientists went to the mountains. The mollusk was in an inaccessible place on 2360 meters high. Scientists have investigated the fossilized mollusk, its age of approximately 100 million years. Its dimensions are impressive: height turned out to be more than three meters, the circumference of more than seven meters, presumably, its weight is 12-13 tons. Antiquity photographed and took samples for analysis to be done at the Moscow Paleontological Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences. As already known, the surface of our planet does not remain unchanged. Tectonic plates are in constant motion due to why, the bottom of the seas and oceans sooner or later becomes land, and land becomes the bottom. This is evidenced by many finds made in different places of the world at the bottom of the oceans.
