Paleontologists have discovered a new species of amphibians
English scientists have discovered the remains of a weight of 200 kg. amphibians that live in lakes and seas, 220 million years ago. Discovery was found in the South of Portugal in the Algarve.

In place of detecting amphibians, as are researchers from the Edinburgh Institute in the UK, previously there was a large lake that has dried up. This resulted in the death of animals that left behind a large number of bones.

They learned that the adherents of the species of metoposaurid were the size of cars, informs "Bi-bi-si". With all this, their appearance was identical with salamanders and newts, but their own behavior resembled crocodiles. Their main food was fish.

Unlike today's amphibians, adherents of metoposaurid dwelt on the top of the food chain. "They had hundreds of sharp teeth and a large flat head, which looked like the toilet seat when I shut jaw," said the head of research paleontologist Steve Brusatte.

At the end of the Triassic period, when the dinosaurs and mammals were not very large amounts, these amphibians are the terror of other creatures. With all this, after a global extinction of Metoposaurid dinosaurs and other mammals began to dominate over other animals.

As wrote earlier Days.Roux, for the first time scientists were able to introduce genes from the remains of the mammoth in the cells of the Indian elephant. Professionals have implemented those genes that are responsible for the survival of the animals in cold climates: woolen cover, subcutaneous fat, big ears, and hemoglobin. However the ambitious work was the opponents who feel the need to save the animals today.
