Non animals?

Postby Arthropoda » Sat Jul 29, 2017 8:33 pm

Will you also be able to raise prehistoric plants, fungi, "microbes" and other non animal organisms?

Why not? Who wouldn't want to exhibit a prototaxites?

That would be a lot of extra work and I don't see much of a benefit...

A lot of extra work? If anything, it would be less work since plants and fungi don't move. And you don't see much of a benefit?
So you just want the animals living surrounded by modern plants and fungi?

That's primarily what they'd be housed in.

Your saying they would be housed with MODERN flora? That's ridiculous. Prehistoric plants and fungi that actually lived at the time of the animal in the enclosure would be much better.

Using extinct species of plants would be much more expensive than using what's already there.

How would it be expensive? Imagine if it was the other way around, prehistoric plants with modern animals. That would dumb, right? Plants are as important as animals, if not more.

The extinct plants would have to be cloned and could die due to different environments, modern plants just have to be put onto a cargo ship and they're already on the island.
