There have been more than one case of 30,000 years of extinction. Why did the long-lost species reappear?
Earth is not only the home of human beings, but also the home of all life. Since 3.85 billion years ago, the life of the earth has not stopped. Many organisms have become more powerful after long-term evolution, such as mosquitoes and mice. span class=”entity-word” data-gid=”14964359″>Prehistoric creatures eventually disappeared into the long river of history due to their inability to adapt to the environment, such as dinosaurs and Mammoth.
However, there are some natures on the earth that are inconsistent with the evolution of species In fact, some confirmed extinct creatures reappeared in the natural world again, and it seems that they do not conform to the laws of natural evolution, because in the long river of history, many species have never appeared after extinction. The dinosaurs that were once at the top of the food chain are a typical example. example of. What’s wrong with the earth? Could it be said that there is a super ability to copy creatures?
After 30 years of disappearance, the species reappears
Scientific research claims that in 1990, 30 years ago, the last tracked deer was killed mercilessly by humans Dead, the species was forced to declare extinction, and has never appeared in our field of vision since then, but in November 2019, researchers once again found traces of mouse deer in ancient forests in Vietnam, and the trap camera recorded clear photos.
The mouse deer is the smallest hoofed animal in the world, Its size is not much bigger than that of a mouse, but the venison of mouse is very delicious, and it is welcomed by many foodies. It is for this reason that the number has become less and less. Today, the only remaining quantity in the Vietnamese forest is not much. It has entered the edge of extinction, but greedy humans still have not stopped hunting. I don’t know how long this kind of species that is about to be extinct can exist?
Extinction of species that has been extinct for 30,000 years
There are more than one cases of extinction and recurrence of species. Some studies have pointed out that Aldabra, north of Madagascar The island has discovered a new bird that cannot take off. This bird became an extinct species 136,000 years ago. Research data show that 136,000 years ago, the flooded sea water had submerged Aldabra Island for a long time. This flightless bird is obviously inevitable, and the extinction is certain.
However, there is evidence that, 100,000 years ago, this The flightless birds reappeared on Aldabra Island, and it has been extinct for 30,000 years, and now it is flourishing. Experts found fossils of flying birds 100,000 years ago on the island and obtained irrefutable archaeological evidence. This flying bird is called the white-throated chicken, and now the island is everywhere, and the development momentum is very good.
Over three years after the extinction suddenly reappeared, this is indeed It does not conform to the laws of nature, which is unbelievable. Researchers are also confused. Is it that the earth has re-evolved a new white-throated chicken in just 30,000 years. If this is the case, dinosaurs and mammoths should have appeared again. But in fact they did not appear, indicating that the idea of re-evolution is wrong.
Why do long-lost species reappear?
The reappearance of extinct species surprised us, but a careful analysis of the cause is not impossible. The first possibility is that the species is not truly extinct, such as white-throated chickens, although evolution It is impossible to fly, but you can swim on the water, like a duck, swim to another island to survive, and then return to the habitat when the water level recedes.
The actual situation of the mouse deer is that it has not been extinct at all, but humans have not discovered it. The second possibility is that although the species is drowned, it has left a large number of bird eggs, which are the water level. After receding, the bird’s eggs began to hatch, giving birth to a new life, allowing the white-throated chicks to continue to reproduce.
All in all, these so-called extinct species have reappeared, and some have developed well. For the natural world, this is definitely a beneficial thing, and it has a certain role in promoting the balance of the ecosystem. It has been reported that Kent, UK is preparing to introduce an extinct species from other countries. This plan is to restore the ecosystem.
According to scientists, bison usually rub and rub down trees And eat the bark to provide nutrition for other animals and plants. When the bison rubs the tree, it will make a lot of leaves fall. It is beneficial to animals such as lizards and burrowing wasps. Peeling the bark is beneficial to the development of insects and fungi.
One of the most worrying issues today is that the ecological balance of the earth is being unprecedentedly destroyed, and many wild species are extinct, but many extinct species are not like mouse deer and white-throated chicken Fortunately, it can be reproduced again after extinction, but it disappears forever in the long course of history. Therefore, we must protect nature and ensure the ecological balance of the natural world. Only in this way can human beings develop for a long time in a state of common prosperity. I believe everyone understands that the disappearance of a large number of species will inevitably have a major impact on humanity.
