When it comes to Mayan culture, most people will think of the famous "2012 end of the world", in the Mayan prophecy, in 2012, the world's human beings will be extinct, but after the verification of time, we found that the "end of the world" is nothing but feudal superstition.
However, people's attention has been drawn to words like "the end of the world in 2012", and little attention has been paid to the Mayan phrase that followed - the great resurrection of extinct creatures.
In the Mayan prophecy, after the end of the world, the order of the earth will be reconstructed and all extinct creatures will show signs of resurrection.
Everyone who hears this news will scoff, after all, in our concept of making extinct creatures come back to life again, is simply impossible.
However, it is no coincidence that the extinct animals of some countries do show signs of resurrection, and they reappear in front of everyone's eyes, making everyone once again question the Mayan culture.
- Yangcai Arm Golden Turtle
Yangcai Arm Golden Tortoise is not a kind of tortoise, but what we call Golden Tortoise, which often lives in the tropical rainforest at an altitude of about 993 meters, and is an extremely rare animal, not only entered the IUCN Red List, but also is a key protected wild animal in China and a national second-class protected animal.
The Yang-colored-armed Golden Tortoise is mostly found in Fujian, Jiangsu, Hunan and other areas in China, but due to environmental changes and people's capture, the population is getting rarer and rarer. 1982, China declared the Yang-colored-armed Golden Tortoise extinct, which means that there should not be any Yang-colored-armed Golden Tortoise seen in the world anymore.
The result is surprisingly, the Yang colored arm golden tortoise was bizarrely "resurrected", September 27, 2011, Shangrao City Wildlife Protection Station revealed to reporters that he found the Yang colored arm golden tortoise, after the identification of experts from the Forestry Biological Control and Quarantine Bureau, found that the situation is true.
Although the Yang colored arm golden tortoise reappeared, but experts also produced the corresponding doubts, to know, Yang colored arm golden tortoise tends to appear in Jiangxi and other places, in Shangrao City, such a place, it is the first time.
- White Throated Rooster
The White-throated Ruffed Grouse is the last remaining flightless bird in the marine western part of the Indian Ocean and is a small wading bird. These birds existed roughly 136,000 to 240,000 years ago and gradually lost their ability to fly to avoid predators.
However, 136,000 years ago, there was a huge tsunami on the island where the white-throated chicken was located, and the huge waves swallowed the whole island in an instant, and the flightless white-throated chicken was thus exterminated.
However, in 2021, the white-throated chickadee once again appeared in front of the public, but this time he did not appear on the extinct island, but on the Aldabra Atoll, this event is also puzzling, not only that, the form of the white-throated chickadee has also changed.
Biologist David Martill believes that the White-throated Ruffed Grouse has "re-evolved", evolving a new form once again in a different ecological context.
In this regard, our fossil website also published a related article, named: "The flightless bird "white-throated chickens" of Aldabra Atoll appeared after its extinction 136,000 years ago, and then "re-evolved".
- Tasmanian Tiger
Although named after a tiger, this tiger looks more like a jackal in appearance, but it also has a kangaroo-like "nursery pouch", so it is also known as the "pocket wolf", because of the destruction of the environment, coupled with a large number of human hunting, the pocket wolf was confirmed extinct in 1963.
Strangely enough, in 2021, a number of people in Australia approached the police to say they had seen wolves in the wild.
In addition to these animals, there are many other animals that have come back to life, such as the golden tortoise in India, as well as tiger rats and Galapagos tortoises around the world.
The reappearance of these creatures, so that gradually fade out of view of the Mayan prophecy is once again active, is the great resurrection of extinct animals really related to the Mayan prophecy? The answer is no.
The reason for the "resurrection" of animals
From a scientific point of view, the reappearance of this group of extinct creatures and Mayan prophecy does not have much to do with the Mayan culture as a traditional crystallization of thought, still can not change the fact that its feudal superstition, and our definition of animal "extinction", is also more subjective.
In fact, when we determine whether an animal is "extinct", we often do not look at it from the dimension of the entire planet, which is too large to survey all species, so the IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) has a strict definition of extinction.
Under IUCN regulations, an animal can only be considered "extinct" if no information is available on the animal after multiple rounds of surveys and sampling of the species' habitat.
Therefore, the definition of extinction is not strict, because some animals, probably due to small size, or all the way to protect the color, from the nature of the temporary "recession", which, in the eyes of people, and extinction.
So, biologists often find many "extinct" creatures in the wild, there is nothing unusual about this, but with the "aura" of Mayan prophecy, so that the issue seems confusing.
In addition, the reason for the resurrection of animals and the natural environment also has a lot to do with the gradual enhancement of China's environmental protection concept, the increasing quality of the people, China's environment is getting better and better, environmental management has achieved very good results, which provides a very good environment for biological survival.
When the Yangtze River was flooded with fish, the country carried out a "ten-year ban" plan, and when the northeast species decreased, China also introduced relevant laws and regulations, in short, China's excellent environmental management, but also these species from "invisible" to "appear" a key factor.
With the gradual implementation of environmental management, in the future, there will be more "extinct" species appear in front of us.
As a part of human civilization, Mayan culture naturally has its mysterious color, however, with the development of the times and the progress of science and technology, our understanding of all things will change from vague to clear, so we should have an attitude of appreciation rather than an attitude of worship towards Mayan culture.
When some animals are really "extinct" from our side, we should look for the problem from our own body, because this nature is a harmonious coexistence, when we human beings are excessive demand from nature, nature will also give us a heavy blow.
It is imperative to protect the ecosystem and biodiversity!
