26 New Comparisons Of The Sizes Of Prehistoric Animal Ancestors And Their Modern Relatives By Roman Uchytel Interview With Artist
Have you heard of myths about how back in the day on earth, there used to live gargantuan giants? Well, I think our ancestors had a pretty good hunch about what really happened, actually. Most of our modern animals are so small compared to what the animals used to be like, but there are some interesting exceptions to the rule.
How do I know all of this? Roman Uchytel, an Ukrainian paleontologist and graphic designer, recreates them with the tools available and shares them online for everyone to learn and see an actual scale of how different our ancestors were, both in size and other features. His previous post was a hit, so let us show you some of his most recent work.
Though doing this is Roman's passion, unfortunately, he has more pressing matters on his mind. His country is being attacked, and he shared with Bored Panda about what's going on over there. "After eight days of bombing, I was forced to go with my family from Kharkiv to the Dnipropetrovsk region. It’s still quiet here, but the situation could change at any second..."
"I keep working as much as possible, despite everything. And another part of my job right now is to spread the truth about how Russia is bombing maternity hospitals and hospitals in Ukraine, general information pressure on NATO and the EU to close the skies over Ukraine (#noflyzone) or provide Ukraine with sufficient aircraft and anti-aircraft weapons! Nowadays Ukraine is defending not only Europe, but the whole world against a madman Hitler-Putin who took nuclear weapons from Ukraine in exchange for security guarantees, which Russia violates every day, killing Ukrainian civilians! So we hope that the politicians from all over the world will stop shaking with fear, and will take concrete and effective measures against the Russian aggressor state!"
"And I know that the most real help is provided by ordinary people! And I am very grateful to all those people who care for our Prehistoric Fauna project and the Ukrainian Army! But we still need support, so we ask you to place the details for the assistance (please find at the end of this mail). We also ask you to share truthful information about how Russia is bombing civilians and lying to the whole world that it is shelling exclusively military targets! We ask you to boycott Russian goods and pressure companies and brands that still do not want to leave the Russian market!
