Thousands came together for the world's Largest camel race. The people of Mongolia participated in the annual festival in order to encourage re-population of the dying species! Such wonderful efforts for a title. #animals #camel #desert #cool #facts #DYK #kids #animal #Mongolia #funfacts
A quarter of a billion years ago, long before dinosaurs or mammals evolved, the 10-foot (0.3-meter) predator Dinogorgon, whose skull is shown here, hunted floodplains in the heart of today's South Africa. In less than a million years Dinogorgon vanished in the greatest mass extinction ever (the End-Permian Extinction, a/k/a "The Great Dying"), along with about nine of every ten plant and animal species on the planet.
