WATCH: A Colossal Dinosaur On Lake Michigan
Like a moment cut straight from Jurassic Park, a dinosaur was caught on a camera roaming the shoreline of Lake Michigan.
Most dinosaurs died out by the end of the Cretaceous Period, about 66 million years ago. Dinosaur fossils are all that’s left of those prehistoric animals. We find dinosaur fossils in the ground, in riverbeds and lakes, and on the sides of cliffs and mountains. And along Lake Michigan? No. And yes.
Evidence of Dinosaurs have never been found in Michigan. The sediments in this state were steadily being eroded by natural forces. In other words, dinosaurs did live in Michigan 100 million years ago, but their remains didn't have a chance to fossilize.
This Dino seen along Lake Michigan is not a fossil. This dino was alive and well and DANCING! WATCH!
Wavyphoton posted this video on Tik Tok. It's a T-Rex wearing boots and a safety orange vest.
The T-Rex or Tyrannosaurus rex did roam western North America when they were alive. The dinosaur is a carnivore with a massive skull and long sweeping tail. They are known for the short stubby hands and it is still among the largest known land predators ever and is estimated to have exerted the strongest bite force among all terrestrial animals.
The T-Rex is known to be a scavenger. The one in this Tik Tok video is only scavenging...for a camp fire. Wavyphoton said they purchased the costume for a rustic camping trip last fall. They decided to put on the safety orange vest because it was hunting season.
The next time you go the beach, keep your eyes peeled for a dancing dino. You don't need to be a paleontologist to realize what you're seeing!
