Rodents and several mammalian species are getting extinct. Blame the Earth’s orbit wobbles or variations and its tilt for this devastation! Dutch scientists have studied rodent fossil records – that date back 22 million years — in central Spain have discovered the link between the rise and fall of mammal species and changes in the Earth’s behavior.
Dr Jan van Dam, of the Utrecht University in the Netherlands, said
Extinctions in rodent species occur in pulses which are spaced by intervals controlled by astronomical variations and their effects on climate change…
He further said,
Rodents are very sensitive to seasonal changes because they have such a short lifespan.
