Is an Albertosaurus bigger than a Gorgosaurus or smaller than a Gorgosaurus?

Both tyrannosaurids have specimen that are near identical in length, at ~9m, though, the Albertosaurus has a maximum recorded specimen length at 10m. This means that between Albertosaurus & Gorgosaurus, the length range was 8–10m & 8–9m respectively. So, the Albertosaurus is longer based on uncovered specimen.Due to the similarity & closeness of skeletal structure

What would happen if pandas went extinct?

The following things will happen if an Pandas go extinct...I would die since there's not a adorable animal called PANDA living anymoreChina will become a forest of bamboos since there's not a cute animal called PANDA to eat themEveryody will be miserable and sad since there's not a squishy animal called PANDA to entertain themThere will be no more

Can we bring an extinct human species back to life?

Probably not. I don't think we have any intact DNA from any other homonin species. We don't have the technology at this point to reconstruct degraded DNA from long-extinct animals, and we can't be 100% sure we ever will.Then there's the ethical consideration. What would the status of another homonin species be?

What would happen if flies became extinct?

It's not as hypothetical or silly a question as some of the other answers seem to presume. Humans are close to having sufficient command of genetic technology to erase a species from the Earth. We will do this for species that are sufficiently annoying. Mosquitoes? On

What would happen if domestic cats went extinct?

Aside from disappointed cat lovers, there would be an impact on the local wildlife. It would depend a lot on the country, with continents like Australia and New Zealand benefiting most (cats will also prey on other imported vermin - rabbits for instance - so the impact would not always be beneficial to the fauna).Because

What would happen tomorrow if all species that were extinct would come alive?

It would be extremely crowded.More than 99 percent of all species, amounting to over five billion species that ever lived on Earth are estimated to be extinct.It would a extreme mess. Most of them are not designed to even survive basic conditions today, like oxygen too thin, to much carbon dioxide, or too

Is it important to save species from extinction?

I would think so. Every creature plays a role, and we don't always know what that is, or we are ignorant of the scope. Take the mosquito. From many perspectives, this animal is a pest. It spreads disease as it bites. But if we were to rid the world of mosquitoes, there may be a cascade effect.

When species become extinct because of human intervention, does that mean that we have over-ridden natural selection?

In some cases. For example, the dodo got extinct because dutch sailord hunted itto extinction. If himans had not interfeared, they probably would still be arround.But orher animals can get extinctl on their own, without'help' of humans.So i wouldsay it is a case to case basis

What would happen if all the animals (including humans) except plants went extinct?

A huge number of plants would become extinct too, including all those that are pollinated by insects and birds, carnivorous plants, and those that rely on birds and mammals to spread their seeds. After that there would be a free for all, with nothing being eaten and no animal matter to enrich

Where did dinosaurs sleep?

As one writer already said,

Could humans become extinct?

Yes we could. There have been at least five major extinction events in Earth's history and four of them have been caused by some form of climate change.We are triggering a major climate change event now.That climate change event will create hundreds of millions of

What if Insects went extinct?

Oh my, that would be catastrophic! While we wouldn't have mosquito born illnesses, Fido wouldn't have fleas, and farmers wouldn't need insecticide to protect their crops; that wouldn't matter, because we will have all starved to death. With insects making up 80 percent of all species on earth, their removal would have a huge effect on the

Does gas has dinosaur remains? Because it's called fossil fuel? How much of it will be from dinosaurs?

Actually petroleum fossil fuels are derived primarily from plankton, foraminifera, and other microscopic sea life. Coal is derived from vegetation not animal remains.

Which was the most recent human species to become extinct?

There was a population of hominids Homo floresiensis that was believed to have lived as recently as 12,000 years ago. However, more recent studies indicate that it was closer to 50,000 years since their extinction.Thus Homo neanderthalensis probably clinch

Are dinosaurs a hoax? Or not?

NO. It would be like saying if Birds are hoax - Dinosaurs still live in the world around us, only, we know them as Birds. I don't want to sound mean, but you should really do some research before you go asking absurd questions like this one.Also, not everything you hear on Youtube is real!

Were dinosaurs extinct long before humans appeared on the face of the Earth?

Very yes. As others have noted, by about 64,000,000 years.I got in trouble for knowing this in primary school. For some strange reason, we had a ‘religious education' teacher come in (proselytising is specifically banned in state schools under the Australian constitution, so

What would the world be like if extinct species were still alive?

Kind of hard to answer.It depends on if we go back to the very beginning and ensure no species ever goes extinct, or if under the current conditions they suddenly popped into existence.Under the first condition, the world would be full of the first organisms, because in order for them

What if all plants went extinct?

life itself will phase out.without plants, herbivores will slowly starve to death.carnivores feed on herbivores and might survive longer.scavengers will be the last to go after all others die out.then from the ashes, new species of plants will evolve from surviving microbes.

What are the effects human have on our natural environment as well as possible solution on endangerment and extinction of species?

A couple of years ago, I took my son to the museum. He was awed by mammoths, giant sloths, and other mega fauna. He asked where these animals were at the zoo.

Do dinosaurs still exist? What are some theories that support this idea?

About 10,000 species of dinosaurs still exist today, but they all belong to one dinosaur family: the birds.The relationship between birds and other dinosaurs is very apparent in the similarities between their skeletal structures, respiratory system, eggshells, and even their behavior, and the evolution of modern birds from

If a species is moving towards extinction due to natural causes, would human intervention be made to save the species?

No, not intentionally. Not if it's happening naturally.Natural extinction is a comparatively slow process, that take hundreds, if not thousands of years. In most cases a species, like our ancestors say..homo habilis, simply evolves into another species.If it is extinction by

Why did the dinosaurs come before humans?

The earliest mammals and the earliest dinosaurs evolved about the same time, in the Triassic period. At that time, the oxygen levels were only about 60% of what they are now.Archosaurs, including the dinosaurs, had lungs where the air is inhaled through one set of tubes and exhaled through another, so they

Should extinct animals be brought back if they could be?

Certain ones can be, but I predict this is going to cause a situation we never realized before.What if we bring back an extinct species thinking it can survive in today's conditions and it will fit back into a old niche it lost, but does the opposite?

When species become extinct because of human intervention, does that mean that we have over-ridden natural selection?

Why were insects so huge during the time of the dinosaurs?

Insects were quite large during the Carboniferous period (approximately 300 million years ago). Think of a dragon fly with a 3 foot wing span! At that time the Earths climate was mild and forest covered vast areas of land and algae flourished in the

What is the second most intelligent animal on Earth both living and extinct, excluding humans?

The most intelligent animal on earth besides humans would be chimpanzees followed by pigs and dolphins. Hope this helps

Do zoos help animals from going extinct?

Absolutely!There have been many attacks on zoos lately because apparently these caged animals deserve to be frolicking in the wild, or something.Zoos have brought about many successful Breeding and Reintroduction Programs

Which 'extinct' animals are most likely not truly extinct, but severely endangered?

The Silent Valley Tropical frog.Scientists and conservationists searching for lost frog species in India rediscovered this species after one of the frogs was found by chance in a garbage bin in 2010. The last time it was sighted before this was in 1980.Source: Lost Amphibians of India

Were there dinosaurs in Ireland?

Most of Ireland was shallow seas during the Jurassic and Cretaceous, meaning no dinosaurs. But, where there was dry land, there might have been some. Unfortunately, the conditions for preserving fossils from that time haven't been that great in Ireland. There was extensive volcanic activity
