I still think its somehow possible. In paleontology class, my professor was explaining how the accepted theory is that the yucatan peninsula is perhaps where an asteroid or comet impacted with earth circa 65 million years ago. Lets say that happened. according to him (sometimes i fall asleep so i may have heard wrong , 95% of the earth's creatures were wiped out by this catastrophe. Thats the end of dinosaurs according to science.
But what i dont understand is, how could an entire kingdom of creatures be obliterated at once and only 5% live??? Rather i think they died out more slowly than accepted and perhaps, there may have been a few roaming around thousands of years ago, although there is no fossil record to support this. Coelcanths lived before dinosaurs and are still alive today though and the ginkgo tree was thought to be extinct as well i believe and theres one on my block now.
There is a swamp the size of florida in zaire that has yet to be explored by "civilized man." the pygmies claim to see a huge lizard and turtles as big as man. ya never know. I know the egyptians talked about flying lizards that only inhabited the oasises that were as big as men.
