    Why did they get so big? You got half of the answer. The other half is that the air pressure was also higher back then. This allowed for even more oxygen. It also allowed wings to lift more.

    Okay I have thought about this, and this is what I came up with. The ‘bowls’ theory of evolution. Haven’t seen this anywhere yet. Of course, first, early humanoids walked on on all fours, and at some point, either the climate changed or they wandered into a new area. This new area still had many trees but now the trees were not so close together, also the climate was hot and humid but also cloudy and tree covered. The climate changed so much in Africa over the years, so hard to know where this was exactly. The humanoids now had to walk farther distances between trees to get the fruit. At some point, the humanoid figured out how to make a bowl to carry fruit and nuts. This could be from a big leaf or a hollowed out log piece. The humanoid began stuffing his bowl with fruit, maybe also used a stick to knock down fruit, collected it from the trees, and carried it back to the nest/home to his family. This bowl set up worked so well, the humanoids had a ton of fruit now. They were able to store it too. They got so much fruit, high sugar, their brains got bigger. They also started to walk better, more upright, so they could walk farther to get more fruit. Also they needed to walk upright to carry their bowls better.They started learning how to use rocks and sticks to carve out hollows and make better wood bowls. BUT, they stopped hunting meat and only lived off of fruits and nuts. Fruit and nuts don’t have Vit D. As they lived in a hot cloudy forest, they needed more Vit D, so they began to lose fur to absorb more Vit D from the sun. Eventually, their brains got so big, they started learning how to hunt again, with spears this time. They had also learned how to use sharp sticks from their bowl carving.

    Isn't a hypercarnivore just a carnivore? I thoughy carnivores ate just meat. So if that's all you eat how can it be more than that? And if you eat 50% or less meat should be omnivore not carnivore? What the hell is up with these definitions?

    Can some explain why it's all said that an animal died out due to competition or something rather then just evolved. Esp since we have such varied fossils. When we know the environment changed couldn't that animal adapt I could be wrong but an animal can change into something else without the need to diverge like a population split and one changes, specification. So why can't the one animal become a different one as well as the on animal become 2. Ever since seeing this smarter everyday video about you family in a deck of cards as you go back in time eventually a different species. Since I'm here a decedent does that mean they really went extinct? Does this make sense?
