WE will not know what kind of animals that live in the thousands or millions of years ago, if only scientists have found fossils of them in different places, in different parts of the world. From these discoveries, we now know that the ancient animal different animal today, despite the opinion that the ancient animals were the ancestors of today's animals.

Hollywood several times to make a movie with a character that ancient animals. Call it a movie called The Dinosaur and Jurassic Park were also serialized. Sure, it felt animals were vicious and horrible.

However, for some people, even scientists, the animals were amazing and unimaginable if they were still alive today. Here are 24 amazing Animals Purba, the data is compiled from various sources, including from LiveScience:

Dino Turkey
This animal is like a giant turkey, and also can not fly despite wing. 2 meters high with brightly colored feathers and large claws like giant bird claws. These animals can run at speeds up to 40 kilometers per hour.

According to scientists, animal hagryphus giganteus Latin name is a dinosaur, but from the raptor because it is also a meat-eating animals (carnivores).

Turkey Dino Fossils discovered in southern Utah, USA. Ancient animal is thought to "wander" to New Mexico from his native Canada, about 75 million years ago.

Aerosteon Dinosaurs
This animal is a family of theropod dinosaurs that lived allosauroid late Cretaceous period in an area that is now the country of Argentina. Fossils are an estimated age of 84 million years old, discovered in 1996 in Anacleto. Aerosteon dinosaur has several species. One of them, and the best known is Aerosteon riocoloradensis. Fossils were found one mile north of the Río Colorado, Province of Mendoza.

Aerosteon dinosaur has a height of 9 meters and has a similar respiratory system respiratory system of birds, but including carnivores.

                                                         Aerosteon name comes from the Greek, meaning that aer air, and osteon meaning                                                              bone.

Plesiosaurs
Large-bodied marine reptile called latin sauropterygian lived in the early Jurassic period. Existence is known by nearly complete skeletons were found in England.

When the issue of the Loch Ness monster in the lake erupted, the monster was believed to be sightings of these animals, but scientists immediately denied because besides the animals have been extinct, is also the head is smaller than the head of the Loch Ness monster that his form had seen a number of people, and even immortalized in a painting.

 In addition, plesiosaurs had a long and slender neck, wide body like turtles, short-                                                                 tailed, and had two couples "big paddle" shaped elongated.

Mega Piranha
Sharp saw-toothed carnivorous fish is suspected to be the ancestor of modern piranha fish that live in the Amazon River, and lived in the late Miocene (between 8-10 million years ago).

Animals of the family characin serrasalmid have become extinct, and when they exist, can be expected to live with the body until 1 meter, or four times longer than the modern piranha fish.

The presence of these fish are known as fossils found in 2009 in Argentina. Although the fossils are not in a complete state, but it is believed that the animal is deadly because it has a zigzag row of teeth similar to modern piranha teeth. Teeth tooth that                                                         has one line that serves to cut the prey, and the two rows of teeth that seems to work                                                         for chewing plants eaten.

Dunkleosteus Terrelli
The scientists suspect that prehistoric fish is the king of the animals that lived 400 million years ago, because of sheer size, which can reach a length of 33 meters and a weight of 4 tons, and could feed two at once modern sharks.

This fish is one of the biggest arthrodire placoderms family lived in Devon final period (approximately 380-360 million years ago), and is an apex predator hypercarnivorous.

Dunkleosteus dinichthyidae originally included in the family, the family who are mostly carnivorous arthrodires like gorgonichthys. But the depth of the detail of this animal                                                             fossils found in North America, Poland, Belgium and Morocco, made ​​arthrodire                                                                     pachyosteomorph included in the family.

Camarasaurus
Animal name means "lizard booth 'because animal bones have a hollow space. Family of herbivorous dinosaur Camarasaurus is commonly called a sauropod dinosaur, and four-legged. fossils found in the Morrison Formation of Colorado and Utah, United States.

Camarasaurus lived in the late Jurassic period (between 155 and 145 million years ago), and lived in what is now the Sahara Desert. The maximum body length of about 15 meters with a height of 23 feet and can reach a maximum weight of 47 tons.

This skull is curved with berbetuk face square and blunt bermoncong. The length of the teeth that can reach 19 inches and shaped like chisels (spatulate), lined with regular and flat on the jaw. While the front legs have five toes with large claws and sharp.

Just like most sauropods, Camarasaurus front legs shorter than the back. However, the shoulder just slightly tilted backwards.

Mammoth
Animals like modern elephants have "long hair" is unusually thick. These animals also bergading curved and has a larger body size of mastodons, mammoths because it can have up to 4 feet tall and weighing up to 12 tons.

Animals are used as the main character in this cartoon extinct Ice Age about 10,000 years ago, and until now scientists have not been sure that this animal is extinct due to climate change such as extreme end of the Ice Age, or the result of human hunting. In fact there are some scientists who think that the animal is extinct due to a meteor was also suspected to be the cause of the extinction of the dinosaurs.

Mammoth estimated life of the period Pliocene (about 5 million years ago) to the Holocene period (about 4,500 years ago) in Europe, Asia, and South America covering up Mexico region. Mammoth is Elephantidae family members who were the ancestors of modern elephants.

Leviathan Melvillei
The ancestors of modern whales become extinct approximately 25 million years ago. In contrast to the pope that we know today, that seem soft and harmless, Leviathan Melvillei a dangerous predator with terrible teeth and big eyes are supposed to be best senses when hunting prey.

From fossil found in Peru coastal released in June 2010, recognized that the skull of this fish has a length of 3 meters, while the body length can reach 18 meters.
