Chicxulub crater is a supposed place where a meteor struck causing final extinction of all land animals over 55 pounds. A more likely candidate is the much more massive Shiva impact site located under the Arabian Sea off the coast of India near Bombay

    Chicxulub crater formed by the impact of a meteoroid is believed to be one of the reasons for the extinction of dinos millions of yrs ago.

    Chicxulub crater – one of the things (along with the shiva crater, deccan trap) that may have lead to the dinos going exting

    One of the leading causes of the Cretaceous–Tertiary extinction event (which wiped out T-rexes) is believed to be a bolide impact at Chicxulub in the Yucatan peninsula.

    Chicxulub Crater,Alvarez Hypothesis,KT Boundary,Dead dinosaurs.

    AM guessing you mean the Chicxulub Crater, the place that is linked to the K-T Boundary impact, which ended up wiping out the Dinos.

    The Chicxulub crater is an ancient impact crater buried underneath the Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico, the impact associated with the crater is implicated in causing the extinction of the dinosaurs as suggested by the K–T boundary

    The gigantic meteorite that struck the Earth and is believed to have destroyed dinosaurs hit the Earth and formed a crater at the spot that is now present-day Merida.

    the tail of the devil.

    This is the Chicxulub crater, which co-incided with the extinction of the shown creatures in the Cretaceous period.


  13. Chicxulub crater..extinction of dinos!


  14. Karan

    is this the thing about the meteor strike? it hit earth near north america ages ago and the collision is said to have wiped out the dinos.

    Green arrow points to Chicxulub, where the meteorite that is believed to have led to the extinction of dinosaurs landed. There was one more large crater found at the ‘blackedened out’ place in the Gulf of Mexico, lending support to a multiple impact theory.
    Another giant crater (Shiva crater), has been discovered off our west coast, near Mumbai.
