An interesting article popped up on our radar recently, which highlighted the extinction of the Saber-Tooth tiger. According to the article by vanderbilt.edu, new evidence is showing that starvation did not cause the extinction of the Saber-Tooth tiger.
The article goes on to state that the late Pleistocene were living well off the fat of the land. This conclusion was reached when microscopic wear patterns on the teeth of these great cats were recovered from the La Brea tar pits in southern California. It turns out that these cats did not show any signs
that they had trouble finding prey in the period before they went extinct 10,000 years ago.
“The popular theory for the Megafaunal extinction is that either the changing climate at the end of the last Ice Age or human activity – or some combination of the two – killed off most of the large mammals,” said Larisa DeSantis, assistant professor of earth and environmental sciences at Vanderbilt, who headed the study.
“In the case of the great cats, we expect that it would have been increasingly difficult for them to find prey, especially if had to compete with humans. We know that when food becomes scarce, carnivores like the great cats tend to consume more of the carcasses they kill. If they spent more time chomping on bones, it should cause detectable changes in the wear patterns on their teeth.”
If planet x makes its passage every 3,600 years, and you multiply this times 3 you come to 10,800 years, around the time of the Saber-tooth, which is interesting. In an article entitled “3,600 Proof in numbers” the poleshift.ning blog highlights the wooly mammoth extinction:
“The Mastodon [or mammoth] is a species that went extinct during the past few pole shifts, primarily when the grasslands they browsed in Siberia were drawn rapidly into the new polar circle.” ZetaTalk
“In 1797 the body of a mammoth, with flesh, skin, and hair, was found in northeastern Siberia. The flesh had the appearance of freshly frozen beef; it was edible, and wolves and sled dogs fed on it without harm. The ground must have been frozen ever since the day of their entombment; had it not been frozen, the bodies of the mammoths would have putrefied in a single summer, but they remained unspoiled for some thousands of years. In some mammoths, when discovered, even the eyeballs were still preserved.
“This shows that the cold became suddenly extreme .. and knew no relenting afterward. In the stomachs and between the teeth of the mammoths were found plants and grasses that do not grow now in northern Siberia .. (but are) .. now found in southern Siberia. Microscopic examination of the skin showed red blood corpuscles, which was proof not only of a sudden death, but that the death was due to suffocation either by gases or water.”
– Immanuel Velikovsky, Earth in Upheaval
“A population of Woolly Mammoths greatly reduced in size are known to have lived on the island of Wrangel, which lies within the Arctic Circle off the coast of Northern Russia. Carbon isotope dating indicates that these Woolly Mammoths died out 1650 years BC, the most recent date attributed to the extinction of any Mammoth population.” Source
A small earthquake took place Wednesday night, and was felt by people in Victoria. The earthquake measured 3.3 in magnitude, and was felt off San Juan Island at 10:36 p.m, 60 kilometres below the Earth’s surface and 13 kilometres east of Sidney
in Haro Strait, said Taimi Mulder, seismologist with Earthquakes Canada.
There was one resident who mentioned that she has never felt an earthquake like that in her five years in Victoria. “I was really excited,” she said, although the small magnitude of it made it “kind of boring.:
One resident mentioned on twitter said that the shaking lasted about 3 seconds.
