    Ohai! So a few more words about our announcement at the end of the video. If you haven’t watched it, here is a summary: Our shop has grown a lot over the years and it is kind of a big deal for us. Check it out here: We genuinely love creating sciency products that you can actually touch and we are constantly working on expanding it further. Because you guys support us directly we are able to grow our team, consistently improve our research process, spend more time on fine-tuning the animations, working on improving our craft wherever possible. And release our content for free and stay independent. Genuinely thank you so much for that. Email us and let us know what sort of education or science related products you’d love to see in our shop the future:

      i genuinely want everything off your shop i love it all!!

    • .:Camper:.

      The Chicxulub asteroid dino extinction is just a theory, it isn't confirmed. I personally don't think an asteroid did that to the dinos.

    It's your second video (out of ~hundred viewed) I dislike. Because you spend whole timing, banging on oversimplified "asteroid" factor, ignoring dozen of other. Including your own source about new form of plants, that slowly, but drastically changes the food chains: > Perhaps the most important of these events, at least for terrestrial life, was the first appearance of the flowering plants, also called the angiosperms or Anthophyta. First appearing in the Lower Cretaceous around 125 million years ago, the flowering plants first radiated in the middle Cretaceous, about 100 million years ago. Or other cyclic/stress factors, that actually made difference combined with asteroid. P.S. "Birds that are direct descendants of dinosaurs" - another over-simplified old theory. Modern studies look at dino-birds as concurrent spices (like Neanderthals vs Homo sapiens) for prehistoric modern-version-of-birds. And dino-birds looks like failed, because they was heavier, less adopted to hunt for small grass-eating mammals and flower-feeding insects.

    Internet culture is so powerful, some of its slangs made it into a scientific video.

    • Dante Fiore
      Dante Fiore

      Small mammals and birds found places such as caves to hide and survive and being small didn't need a lot of food to survive the apocalypse meaning they lived once the ash was gone

    Phenomenal video. One of your best narrated and displayed ones, yet. It gave me as much joy to watch it as "the story of the egg." Thanks for making these informative videos, and I hope you continue for many more years to come!
