    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.

        What would happen if the titanaboa raided New York City?

    2. Okuyasu Nijimura

      there are things we dont know about that we know about that we dont know about😳

    3. Jack Woods

      We've always pictured dinosaurs as brown, greenish, or grey, camo colors, but many of them might not have been simply because they didn't have to hide.

    4. Ивайло Денков

      Thenx for the Bulgarian subs!

    5. Tamer 009

      in all animation monkey holds somthing or the other in its hand (a easter egg sort of)

    6. David Hsu

      how do you draw a titanoboa or a quetzalcoatlus less scary tho? I dont think you can.

    7. MYK zoot

    8. Surin Atik

      You know the past video that you did then when the rock how did it become normal

    9. Sexy Senior Citizen

      Thank you for treating them as animals and not as movie monsters

    10. Nacht Eule

      Life is so beautiful that it feels like a mistake to experience it, imagine if all humans share the same idea of preserving what we have or see right now in this very present, if all humans became the very balance of life instead of ruination and chaos.

    11. Dulce Lulu

      Gracias kurzgezagt

    12. Zekr0gen

      0:00 welcome to seirai

    14. Yeonjoon Hong

      Honestly Christians or creationists who're saying God created all this biodiversity or don't even believe dinosaurs existed because some only believe the earth was 6000-10000 years old is kind of insulting to the beauty that arose from natural processes. All the hard work that scientists put into these studies just being rejected by pastors or other people with no real credentials misrepresenting science as a whole is appalling.

    15. Steve Bourgeault

      You should make more videos about the ants

    16. Not Your Best Idea

      i like that he called me fat at 4:45. thanks for that.

    17. Yllaño Jay Valido

      It's boring because it doesn't talk much about technology 😭

    18. Nicolle's Dreams

      Amazing video like always

    19. da bearded_one

      to be fair, swans ARE monsters right out of nightmares.

    20. Ari Blue

      Your videos always make me cry 😢

    21. KevC3

      this made me sad

    22. Steve Bourgeault

      Nice joke

    23. Runar He

      FINALLY! But, dinosaurs still exists. The scientific consencus is that birds are dinoaurs and they existed way before t.rex etc.

    24. Emilio Garcia-Sanchez

      Dragons were totally real, and we just haven’t found/won’t find their fossils.


      fucked up in the crib crying over the dinosaur video excellent work

    26. Aste

      TBF baboons are already kind of bizarre and nightmareish. You ever seen one yawn? Let alone their behavior, you don't strut the African servers as a mid-sized omnivore by being pleasant!

    27. Beatbox Allstars

      Thanks for this informative video, we are learning.

      1. what .__.

        People comment on verified ones just to gain likes. like will that make you famous or something noob?

      2. what .__.

        @The pangolin just stop

        Hi checkmark, farming likes are we? gtfo

    28. Dome :3

      You can't do this to me! It looks so cool but I can't afford it right now!! :'v

    29. WarheadOD

      Bro, turn down the music...

    30. Gerald Black

      Iridescent rainbow dinos!

    31. partymetroid

      All Kurzgesagt birbs are dinosaurs.

    32. Asianboi108shorts

      The earth is 6000 years old beleive in Jesus

    33. Gibson Flying V

      There you have it feathered dinosaur crowed!!! Kurzgesagt is one of the most accurate you tubers around and he did a great job pointing out a simple reality. We have no idea what alot of dinosaurs looked like, and frankly based on what evidence we DO have its likely very few of them had feathers.

    34. Mayur Patel

      boo so bad you are bad

    35. Tyrannosaurusspinobiren

      Dinos did not look like that

    36. Tyrannosaurusspinobiren

      Not right

    37. Megh Gusain

      Give your animator a RAISE! Incredible content!

    38. Luis Rodriguez

      I occassionally feel sad about the fact that I will never be able to see anything past that isn't recorded. Thank you for putting it in a video.

    39. Nick Whiskey

      what a sick channel

    40. Skontix

      You are the best educational channel ever. You have beautiful satisfying animations and explain topics so rhetorically. You really do deserve the millions of subscribers you have, in fact you deserve much more than 16m but still, this channel is great and please never ever stop posting.

      The mere gorilla resultspreviously entertain because subway frustratingly smile after a black stranger. honorable, mundane dinghy

    44. TytheGuy

      Idk why 3.4k people disliked this, the art is stunning, the lesson is profound. I love you guys and appreciate the information you relay. Always a pleasure to see a new video even if I am a bit late to this.

    45. 5aax

      6:55 Sort of funny that you mention that dinosaurs have historically been misrepresented as ferocious beasts and then immediately show what is essentially a small bird howling like a Lovecraft monster

    46. King fry memes and gaming

      What if trex were intelligent

    47. The berry

      i watched all Jurassic park movies i know what they look like 😁

    48. sfkeepay

      Another outstanding video! But, for balanced feedback, it seems like saying the tyrannosaurus “...probably had the strongest bite of any land animal ever...” in the same video where you point out that we have fossil remains of less than 1% of all the species that have ever existed....is highly problematic. It seems far more likely that other, even more powerful species existed, but they left no discoverable remains.

    49. Yaz

      The song that goes trough the video and is played at the end is soo good! Have someone in the Kurzgesagt team made it or is it on for example spotify

    50. Niklas99


    51. Juan Balvoa

      Amazing video, really thankful for your work!

    52. EnJotax

      This channel is the fucking best thing in GEtwo and I will never be tired of saying it.

    53. Svalgur Style

      Nice Jurassic park reverence

    54. Sam Millar

      oh guys, this was a really beautiful and poignant one

    55. Ricardo Krupinski

      So good.

    56. Aditi S Iyengar

      Why do Kurzegesagt endings always make me so emotional😭 They truly make the endings have such deep meanings!

    57. Francisco Fernandes

      Hmmm yes, lileep, definatelly a sea creature

    58. william_o99

      This was honestly a really beautiful and bittersweet tribute to all of the species that existed before us. Made me smile with a little tear in my eye. Thank you.

    59. Gustavo Schonarth

      8:30 lemme smash 😂 sorry I couldn't help it

    60. Mohammed Suliman

      08:14 "so maybe the t-rex was a cuddly fellow..." Quote of the day

    61. ShockWaveGXT

      Explaining everything with chickens makes things easy to understand.

    62. Sedrik

      Idk why but I felt very sad, almost drop tears when he was talking about the many species we haven't discovered and we won't. I wish i could know everything I wanted.

    63. Mr Man

      They looked like my parrot some of them

    64. 1000 subs without videos challenge

      This video opens me new perspectives.

    65. Kurt Otoyarivasplata

      I would love my school worked with videos like this, instead they put a crappy audio and video quality one from 2010.

    66. William Thrasher

      can you make a video about bees and how they make honey? I love every episode

    67. Dave Mustard Stain

      GEtwo propaganda

      1. Peppermint Gal

        Everyone's a critic....

    68. VidaxTheDragonMage

      First HE calendar I'm buying, I'm so excited!!!!!

    69. Skipper Grumby

      This is stupid. The number of blue animals in the world is miniscule. Dinosaurs may not have been the green many expect, but they aren't blue. If not green, probably brown, maybe some yellow or red, but definitely not blue. Blue is a difficult color to replicate in nature. Green is easy because of chlorophyll, and brown is easy, just a mishmash of color.

    70. Alec D

      bro why you gotta immediately start the waterworks wuth those mammoths?

    71. Daniel Hugo Rodrigues

      So cool. Go on!

    72. Piemasteratron

      Excellent stuff

    73. Kai Tuan

      i always love this soundtrack when it comes to time and scale.The echoing chorale in the background is just magnificent.

    74. asher platts

      We should explore the deep oceans. Lots of alien-like creatures down there, and very unexplored. Everyone wants to go to Mars, to look for aliens, but nobody wants to find the life we already have here. Like Xenophyophores, the basketball sized single celled organisms that populate areas of the abyssal plain.

    75. do0myk

      What a bunch of useless chatter. I remember when you used to do informative videos. Now its just hippy indoctrination and merch selling

    76. Arisaga

      Meh, whatever.

    77. Finnégan Rynn

      Gay dino

    78. Logika One

      For some reason I feel this video changed me

    79. sprenis

      dinosaurs with human skin?

    80. Shamar Daniel

      Poor baby Mammoth 😭😭😭

    81. H7M©™

      Did he just said shees 😂

    82. Emalo

      2:24 sheeeeesh!

    83. Catherine

      Wow, an episode that made me tear up. Cinematic is fantastic. Animation, sound, the choice of words.. wow. This episode made me so open-minded. Not only in science, but in the matter of not being judgmental to people. This was about dinosaurs but morality is what’s resonated to me.

    84. jack cooper

      2:25 sheeeesh 😆👌

    85. ㅊㅎ

      can you tell me actually what is millennium day of god ?

    86. Ali Hassan Mir

      Dinosaurs in this video look like pokemon

    87. Le_mayo

      4:51 How did she get there Edit: timestamp was wrong

      1. Peppermint Gal

        I never thought I'd be thirsting for a Kurzgesagt animation lmao

    88. infinity

      2:23 *SHEEESH*

    89. Avipt

      Just look at Emus, they dont have wings, they have 2 small devolved arms with 1 claw on each arm. Also their feathers are not like normal bird feathers, closer to a....broom. The fact that i will never be able to see what a dinosaur really looked like is...heartbreaking.

      1. BreadHatter

        Emus won a war against Australians

    90. UserX-1099

      So basically, a lot of giant chickens.

    91. Sree Hari

      Please do a video about the atmosphere of early earth during Dinosaur era

    92. mrpositronia

      Imagine feeling compelled to down vote this great video. I can't.

    93. S3V3N13TT3R5

      What a shame I had a terrible evolutionary biology professor boring class :(

    94. Mr.Tobi

      Ist Kurzgesagt nicht eigentlich deutsch

    95. Jonathan Martin

      Anyone else notice the Sailor Moon poster @ 9:43?

    96. Shirley Mental

      'Well never know what they looked like'. Ever heard of jurasic park?? Sheesh.

    97. Fixy Clary

      7:40 Kurzgesagt animated Lions; my life is now complete!

    98. Sierra Kaye

      This makes sense when you think about it. If birds evolved from lizard-like dinosaurs, then why haven't we seen anything like that since the meteor struck?

      1. Azriel Moha

        One word. Mammals. Mammals pretty much take and dominate most of the megafaunal niches so much so that reptiles, birds, and amphibians couldn't compete with them.

    99. RemTreeFiddy

      Sounds like a lot of guess work, as usual with every other source that so desperately wants to show a TRex with feathers.

    100. Candy Neige

      The past may be mysterious, but the future is even more mysterious, there is no way to tell what the future holds, the only events that are sure to happen no matter what are astronomical events, such as solar and lunar eclipses for example, we can pinpoint the exact location of the eclipse as well as the exact timing down to the second.
