Perhaps it is the buzzwords ‘climate change’ which is ruling the world of research and after-effect predictions that led to the previous conclusion that the Australia’s giant prehistoric animals were likely wiped out by climate change!
But, the rule proved to be something different in this instance. Be it the 10-foot-tall kangaroos or the wombat-like creatures — as big as a rhinoceros – these animals were led to extinction by aboriginal settlers, and not climate change.
Ruling out the popular theories, new fossil from the Naracoorte Caves region of South Australia State have provided with different concepts. An article published in the latest edition of the Geological Society of America’s monthly journal, Geology reveal.
The author of the article, Flinders University paleontologist Gavin Prideaux, told The Associated Press,
If it wasn’t climate, then it had to be humans… The real issue now is trying to resolve whether it was hunting or whether it was landscape destruction through burning … and a bit of both is more likely.
