Coprolitele (excremente fosilizate) dovedesc că îngroparea s-a petrecut repede, într-un mediu anoxic. Cu alte cuvinte, sunt dovada unui eveniment catastrofic. Coprolitul din imagine aparţine unei specii de dinozaur.

Coprolites (fossil dung) all speak of rapid burial in an oxygen-free environment. In other words, are the proof for a catastrophic event. This coprolite is of an unknown dinosaur species.

New hadrosaur species discovered!

A new hadrosaur species was discovered in Mexico City. The scientist named the new creature Velafrons coahuilensis. Its name means “forehead with sails” due to its obvious skull features (vela=sails, frons=forhead).

The sedimentary layers in which the remains of the animal were buried were thick and their characteristics indicate something of the enormous magnitude of watery catastrophe (flood geology).
