The past is a vast and mysterious land that begins at the big bang and ends in the present, expanding with each passing moment. It is the home of everything that came before, the key to understanding our present. Here we find the most amazing creatures to ever roam our planet, hundreds of millions of species so diverse that our imagination cannot do them justice. Unfortunately the past carefully guards its secrets.

    • Replying before this gets to the limit

    • Please stop with the "unknown unknowns" it sounds so stupid. 😅 Thumbs up btw. 👍

    • lol started witha big bang!!!! idiot

    • hey uh... can you please make sure you don't ran out of merch Intel it turns may 23 because I want to buy your merch on my birthday please 😁

    • les go I'm 10010 years old

  • My boy going into the known unknowns and the unknown unknown speech off the bat

  • The music is waay to hard!

  • 3:20 Urutau??

  • "Time goes on without any concern for our feelings" I'm a new subscriber xD

  • Hollywood: so dinosaurs were these big reptiles th- Basically everyone: *THEY WERE BIRDS*

  • 9:32 Sir David Attenborough! long may he live ♥

  • So dinos are dodas

  • Gaand Faar diye bhaiyya

  • Words cannot express how good your animations have gotten. Great job!

  • The careful lyric pharmacodynamically snore because flame perioperatively fool over a mighty meteorology. seemly, womanly mole

  • God, evey time I watch this video it hits me with awe. Imagine how beautiful the past looked like, because the present is so amazing and then think about the future! I don't want a robotic world I want to see humanity find a way to do less harm to this beautiful planet! I wish to see evolution take place.

  • Not just in our world but in other star systems and galaxies as well. We'll never know about 99.99% of living things that existed or will exist someday. Kinda sucks to realize that.

  • I greatly appreciate "boink apparatus".

  • Why don't you guys create an episode about dragons?

  • This video had strong emotional impact on me somehow

  • I'm not crying you are

  • Pathetic. One type of propaganda to another.

    • ?

  • does anyone else feel bad for the ducks and birds that die?

  • Was that a chalicotherium at 0:16?

  • damn, i hope i die near a river or something so i can get fossilized

  • best channel on youtube

  • This is sick

  • u gonna make me cry bro

  • Great video 👍

  • Variation - random, rare mutations, etc - will have existed amongst the species back then as they do now. Melanic, albino and other variations of colourings we've discovered will probably have existed alongside those animals. Whose to say variation amongst individual populations in slightly different places will not have existed and whose to say we didn't just randomly happen on an exception to the rule, or if we didn't find those exceptions that did exist and so still don't have the full picture of the colours of the dinosaurs we think we know the colours of? Anyway, this was interesting.

  • These animations are so good

  • I thought dinosaur's design in movies were based on modern day reptiles as dinosaurs were reptiles too. Which is why they look ferocious.

  • People that devote themselves to learning history : oh so you having a good time let me change that.

  • The pokemon Lileep can be seen at 5:04 and a pokeball can be seen at 10:53. Reply with any other pokemon references that you may find.

  • Ich teile meine Sachen nicht mit Lasst die Finger davon Meng

  • It’s about time that feathered dinosaurs get more attention. The general public still think dinosaurs are these giant, slow, scales lizards when (more accurately) they are just birds with teeth

  • This is why i'm not so bothered about animals going extinct.99% of species that ever existed are extinct.but new species come all the time.the same species cannot live forever.we shouldn't try to interfere.

    • But the point is, species are disapearing because of us, not naturally

  • What if dragons were real and they went extinct during our time? But there were so few left it was a rare thing to see? Same with Loch Ness monster? I realize this is probably already a thought many scientists have had, but it’s really cool to think about!

  • I love his animation style

  • Awesome, you people are... ( Yoda)

  • I love you for this

  • do the mummy

  • Yeah you just proves the existence of dragons

  • 2:25 I'd like to imagine everyone finding a fossil to scream sheesh like that

  • I didn’t think this would be the video that made me cry. You guys are absolutely fabulous. 😭

  • Imagine if dinesores had technology like us, it's just that there is no evidence.

  • Maybe you are lying 😯

    • Bruh they made a whole video of how you can trust them

  • How are we supposed to know

  • Beautiful Animation. Amazing Details. I love this video.

  • "or are they" *Vsauce noices*

  • As ever, this is a superb video. Thank you, L.

  • A Kurzesgast video that instead of giving me a depression lifted up my depression? What heresy is this?

  • life is all good when kurzgesagt uploads a new vid

  • 2:06 nobody’s talking about how SAD that is?

  • can u gets straight right to the point

    • @Big Chungus ?

    • OMG stop spamming and your making no sense

  • can u gets straight right to the point

  • I don't know...I just cried

  • You right, because chicken say the same thing

  • The animation is gorgeous. Maybe it's because it is fun to animate them as you said.

  • Sailor Mercury is hiding :)

  • SPOILER ALERT! The velociraptor was a bird

  • چرا زیرنویس فارسی نداره؟؟؟؟؟

  • I really do love these videos so much

  • The sheesh from the Archaeologist was impeccablé

  • Pretty sure the newest research shows geez wasn’t covered in feathers, they might have had some but not much if they did like just a bit on the back.

  • I loved that dancing dinosaur 😍

  • The Soundtrack is so underrated.

  • If they could know all animals alive and record all patterns, they could see better how they could be... Sadly the focus is on propaganda and not in true knowledge

  • I just want to believe that there were giant land snails... like... car sized.

  • Shiiiiieeet it's realy cool do more vids like this even 1 video in 1 year

  • Your a legend

  • I’m crying because i love animals past or present I want all to be found

  • I really hope the developers of Jurassic World Evolution 2 are watching this (❁´◡`❁)

  • Anyone knows the music used in the background

  • 4:32 "besides some insects…" *shows a Centipede* >:(

  • Ok

  • Watching Kurzgesagt videos always makes me realize how beautiful and awe-inspiring the world and existence is outside of the shitty society humans made.

  • That was beautiful!

  • 6:05 I understood that reference

  • The skull: 💀 How alien would reconstruct it: 🦖 The animal: 🧒

  • I love dinosaurs so when this video made me happy as a Trex in a butcher’s shop

  • Wished I click the notification as soon as a saw it but I’m glad I watched it anyway I love Thai channel.

  • Can we just talk about how GORGEOUS all the dinosaurs in this video look I was just GASPING at most of the video of how beautiful it looks

  • This video was amazing

  • Please make a video about Taiwan-China relation.

  • 5:05 Lileep 😂😂❤️

  • Kurzgesagt: Lions are cuddly. Tsavo Maneaters: Yes, we are. Please come closer silly hairless ape.

  • Epic vid sir thanks its for our lesson

  • Ive never before had a video inspire me, awe me, and make me have an existential crisis at the same time. Beautifully done.

  • Um, the Earth is only 5000 years old and is flat, and hollow. Dinosaurs aren't real, their fossils were put here by Satan to trick people into thinking they're real so that you'll go to hell and die forever. Wake up sheeple.

  • okay... I think I heard "scythe Lizards" and I seriously just want to give whoever named that a giant hug, because it sounds badass... lol

  • "Maybe the t-rex was a cuddly fellow " Me : 🥺🥺🥺 Please tell me you guys will come out with a t-shirt that says that!!!

  • All my ancestors live inside me

  • And there is one dinosaur in 7:26 it has chrismas decorations

  • 8:31 this lil bird dance is adorable

  • This is misinformation, paleontologists are professionals and they dont miss a reconstruction, if we reconstruct modern animals, we dont get monsters, but the normal animal, guys dont believe this

  • One of the dinosaurs in the video on 6:25 are beutifal

    • And its the same in 6:10

  • So what you're saying is that dragon's existed and that they were cuddly dogs?

  • I almost cry with this video. The realization I will never see a real life dinosaur hit me hard 🥺🥺

    • @Clement Stefanovski idrc

    • @Big Chungus lmao cringe

    • @Clement Stefanovski can you like Let me us the speaking ability that God has given us?

    • @Big Chungus can u like shut up?

    • Well....there is *1* alive but its a bird

  • What if dinosaurs were just distorted humans????

  • Please, type in Greta Thunberg connects climate, ecological, and health crisis.

  • The small mammoth :(

  • Boink aparatus

  • I instantly unsubscribed after this video, please know that paleontologists are professionals and they know what they are doing, and no, if you reconstruct sea lions based off their skeletons you won't get a monster, and it's not just based on their skeleton that paleontologists reconstruct the dinosaurs
