10 Odd Prehistoric Animals Still Alive Today

Sandhill Crane

Native to North America and North Eastern Siberia, the Sandhill Crane is a massive, 10 pound bird. A 10-million-year-old fossil was found in Nebraska, and is thought to be from a Sandhill Crane. Another crane fossil dates back 2.5 million years, and absolutely belongs to the crane.


Sturgeon

The Sturgeon is found in subtropical, temperate, and sub-Arctic rivers, lakes, and coastlines, but is known as a “primitive fish.” The morphology of the fish has remained nearly the same since a 200 million-year-old fossil was discovered.
