Did Ancient Americans Hunt Sauropod Dinosaurs

  1. 1. Did Ancient Americans Hunt Sauropod Dinosaurs Along with Deer , Sheep, Bison and Mammoth? What Can We Learn From Ancient American Petroglyphs? www.s8int.com By Chris Parke r
  2. 2. Picture Writing of the American Indian Col. Mallery, Garrick (1831-94) army officer and ethnologist. In 1877 he was assigned to the U.S. Geographical and Geological Survey to study Indian drawings. He retired from the army in 1879 to work as a civilian on the staff of the Bureau of Ethnology In 1884 he published “Picture Writing of the American Indians” in two Volumes containing 822 pages, 54 plates, and 1290 illustrations, still the definitive work on ancient American picture writing; petroglyphs, drawings and pictographs. The book was Reprinted in 1972, in 2 vols, by Dover Press.
  3. 3. <ul><li>This is the same book from which we took this petroglyph and wondered; what creature was large enough for these ancient Americans to ride in this fashion; standing erect or lying down? </li></ul><ul><li>Parosaurolophus, we wondered? One of the most common dinosaur fossils found in New Mexico. </li></ul>Picture Writing of the American Indian
  4. 4. Picture Writing of the American Indian <ul><li>What did the ancient New Mexican hunt? A variety of creatures including; elk, bison, deer, mammoth, and bighorn sheep . </li></ul><ul><li>This petroglyph from the Rio San Juan, New Mexico and appears to represent the ancient Americans along with some of the game that they hunted in those ancient days. This is a story about hunting. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Picture Writing of the American Indian Rio San Juan Petroglyph <ul><li>Meet the hunters; the Ancient Americans </li></ul><ul><li>One Ancient American is flanked by a giant lizard/reptile? </li></ul>

  7. 7. Picture Writing of the American Indian Rio San Juan Petroglyph
  8. 8. Picture Writing of the American Indian Rio San Juan Petroglyph <ul><li>Conclusion: </li></ul><ul><li>It’s difficult of course to positively identify animals represented in an ancient petroglyph; were they real or fanciful, drawn to scale or not? </li></ul><ul><li>If one is predisposed to believe that a creature could not exist in that time, then another explanation will be given and accepted and certain other possibilities will be foreclosed. </li></ul><ul><li>What other creature has the body shape and long neck of the sauropod or prosauropod dinosaur. A camel, perhaps? A misshapened horse? A completely fanciful creature which just happens to resemble a dinosaur and which also displays the extraordinary size of the dinosaur? </li></ul><ul><li>It’s possible that those who do not see a dinosaur representation here are correct. Its also possible however, that some of the big game hunted in Ancient New Mexico included dinosaurs. </li></ul>
