Admiring Ancient Wildlife With 50 Of Turning Back Time “Nature Was Metal” Photos Collection

As far as we are concerned, lives on earth have been evolving for around two billion years. We might never know how our ecosystem used to be at that point or how lives will transform in the future, but we still can take a grasp of some archaeological shreds of evidence of living existences in the dawning era, as well as the animal evolutional process.

Today we will bring you 50 pictures collected and posted on the refreshing subreddit r/Naturewasmetal, where many online paleontologists all over the world gather and discuss the natural progressing procedure. They usually share pics of archaeological samples such as fossils, pieces of skeletons, or ambers with insect corpses along with simulating 3D images. It has become super hot here with a massive amount of photos, video clips, hypotheses, and recently updated information.

Imagine we are now getting on an explorer that can go back in time when numerous primitive forests were endlessly spreading in front of our eyes! Don’t be scared! Just hang on tight and start to travel back to the past!
