Hello everyone. Karl here and today I will be typing about Fossils in the U.A.E…
Many fossils have been discovered in the U.A.E. Most were discovered in the western coastal region close to Abu Dhabi. Fossils were discovered of invertebrate creatures dating back seventy million years and other of terrestrial vertebrate animals such as 4 tusked elephants, 4 meter long crocodiles and hippopotami dating as far back as the Miocene age (16 million years old). The climate close to Abu Dhabi was very different millions of years ago when the Arabia and Africa land masses were closer together which also allowed the migration of land animals from Africa to Arabia. The two land masses moving apart and the climate changes in Arabia probably led to the extinction of certain species still found in Africa today.
