                What if I told the you that these creatures are being seen in South America? Perhaps they are not millions of years old after all.

                                                people still believe in evolution even without any evidence to support the religion at all? that's silly.

                                                  Curious, the two things that disprove creationism (alongside many other things) is what u draw issue to. BTW it's not "belief" when it comes to evolution and carbon dating.

Some suchus species (crocodiles) had many similar traits as mammals, but were in fact reptile. The mouth and looks of an animal also depends on their life style, not just their species all together.
