:think: ( Giant animals became extinct 13,000 years ago, Did Giant man become extinct 13,000 years ago also? and what was different over 13,000 years ago to cause animals/mamals/humans to become 25 % smaller? im thinking it was a change in gravity, Gravity must be much greater now than over 13,000 years ago, another words if you / me weighed 500lbs over 13,000 years ago it would feel like 200lbs now) :think: . thats my theory, whats yours?) :think:

Giant lions once roamed Britain

Huge lions once roamed Britain alongside tigers and jaguars. By comparing their skulls, scientists revealed that British lions would have weighed up to 50 stone (317kg) ? the equivalent of a small car ? compared to African lions which weigh up to 39 ston Photo: OXFORD UNIVERSITY
The wild animals were 25 per cent bigger than their modern day counterparts and hunted in vast prides during the Ice Age.
The discovery that tigers and jaguars were not the only big cats to inhabit Britain came after an analysis of fossils found in Yorkshire, Devon and London.

By comparing their skulls, scientists revealed that British lions would have weighed up to 50 stone (317kg) – the equivalent of a small car – compared to African lions which weigh up to 39 stone (250kg).
Dr Ross Barnett, who led the research at the University's Zoology Department, said: "These ancient lions were like a super-sized version of today's lions.
"They were up to 25 per cent bigger than those we know today and, in the Americas, with longer legs adapted for endurance running.
"What our genetic evidence shows is that these ancient extinct lions and the lions of today were very closely related.
"Meanwhile, cave art suggests that they formed prides, although the males appear not to have had manes."
The findings – published this week in science journal Molecular Ecology – suggests the lions existed during the Pleistocene era which occurred in Europe between 1.8 million and 10,000 years ago.
Dr Barnett also found the lions split into two main groups with some living in Europe and Alaska and the other living in North America.
He said the lions found in North America were even bigger than the British ones – evolving with longer legs and wider skulls to increase their hunting power.
Dr Barnett added: "This unusual distribution is explained by Ice Age geography when a land bridge linked Siberia and Alaska, enabling ancient lions to cross from Eurasia into North America.
"At some point the North American ice sheets would have interrupted this migration route – creating these two genetically distinct groups of animals."
The British and European lions would have lived in a similar environment to that found in Siberia today and hunted mammoth and giant deer until they all became extinct 13,000 years ago.
Dr Nobby Yamaguchi, co-author of the study, said: "We still don't know what caused this mass extinction, although it is likely that early humans were involved in one way or another." :think:

the reason for the mega fauna as they are refered too 13000 years ago is because during that period it was cooler and drier than today, which meant that most of the deciduous forests of today were huge grasslands back then, grasslands after a few millennium encourage animals to grow larger, the clear open fields allow for easy roaming and movement as opposed to shrubs and trees which would inhibit movement, also trees and shrubs aid in the hiding of animals that are non carnivores, in grasslands this would not exist so one of the ways in which these animals would defend themselves would be to grow large enough to scare away any would be predator, (like today how an elephant shoos away lions), this would cause a evolutionary arms race, in which as the herbivores would grow larger which in turn their larger carcasses would support larger carnivores hence the advent of the mega fauna 13000 years ago, if humans had an impact it would have been negligible, for it is estimated that their would have been an estimated 50,000 humans in the entire western hemisphere as compared to the probably million plus herds that roamed the two continents

Giant Humans and Dinosaurs => http://www.biblebelievers.org.au/giants.htm => Giants are talked about all through history, man and animals. so even if these pictures are real who's going to admit it? :think: :headscratch:
