Welcome to Natural History And Fossils!
Hi Everyone! Im Dinosaurs And Fossils, the creater of this site. In my website you will find information, pictures, videos and a quiz on creatures that have become extinct and learn what they ate, how they looked and how big they were. Please explore my site (still under construction) and enjoy the information. I recommend visiting the videos page, filled with great videos of prehistoric creatures! Also check out the Fossil page and read about my own fossil hunts (to see pictures of the specimens collected, go to the photo gallery and click on the "My Fossil Hunts" gallery). Go down the list of pages 1 by 1 and discover new things about each category from dinosaurs and pterosaurs to seamonsters and prehistoric mammals! Make sure you take the "Which Dinosaur Are You" quiz which is located on the games and widgets page. There is plenty to read and watch, so have fun! And please leave a comment of what you think of this website at the guest book page! Yours Truly, Dinosaurs And Fossils.
Creature Of The Month: Gastornis
Gastornis was a large, flightless bird that evolved in the late Paleocene era (see Timeline). At the time, it was one of the largest land animals on earth, and certainly the top predator. It took up the niche that was once occupied by the dinosaurs, millions of years before. As a predator, it hunted the small mammals that lived in the dense Jungles. Gastornis was as tall as an adult human and would have weighed at least half a tonne. It's fossils have been found in Germany and the U.S.A. Eventually, the forests that Gastornis called home began to vanish and by the late Eocene, it was extinct.
Images of Gastornis are located at the Photo Gallery.
