I build a terrarium with conditions present on earth over 300 million years ago.

  • it should be noted that you reproduced late Carboniferous period.

    • @Cody'sLab Can we have an update? Would you do this in a bigger environment if you found a bigger jar? I'm keen to seen what a few generations of insects would look like been born and raised in this environment.

  • how do you test for oxygen level? Or CO2 level? A couple of times I have made enclosed ecosystems. Once I use river algae and beta, which also had many copepods. Another time I try to simulate both aerobic and anaerobic ecosystems to create a stable enclosed environment. I think the best method would be a slow drip down through many feet of soil, and then just return the water to the upper tank or lake area. It seems a large amount of anaerobic is required to support an aerobic ecosystem. without the constant anaerobic flow, even one fish will fill the tank with Poo. so it's important to have enough area for the bacteria to consume the air breathing waste. I wonder how that works in the carboniferus.

  • Wait! So coal, oil, and other fossil fuels are renewable? Holy cow it almost seems like the power source for the future. It also lowers carbon dioxide and increases oxygen totally debunking the climate change hoax being pushed as of present?

  • What made the carboniferious work was the high levels of CO2 in the atmosphere. The end of that epoch sees the Carboniferous Rainforest Collapse when the CO2 levels dropped because the carcon was tied up in being turned into coal.

  • What would happen if the oxygen levels were less than atmosphere? Would the plants die off due to lack of oxygen or simply grow smaller in order to adapt to a more sustainable size?

  • Cody, I only discovered you about 2 days ago and I've been on a bender watching your completely bonkers yet wonderful videos. You're such a delight to watch and I love your content, please keep making more weird and awesome things happen, as cool as your experiments are I think I actually watch it for you! Anyway would love an update on this terrarium too. Many thanks and best wishes from New Zealand :)

  • The fault in the plants died and stacked up to make coal is the idea that they could actually stack up in a bed thick enough to be compressed and turned into coal. Take a look around the world at the thickest jungle and tell me or show me any spot that could turn into coal. You just don't find it.

  • 60% of the coal I pick up around my neighborhood in Turtle Creek Pennsylvania is around 305 to 300 million years old and had fossils of planets and the other 40% of it is fossilized ash from forest fires that burned the swamps. Now the shale rock all has fossils of plants all around this area. I called the museum and they said from 320 to 295 million years ago this was a swamp. Now coal formed between 318 to 298 in the period called the Pennsylvanian from 328 to 298 million years ago. I love history

  • "Keeping the PH more towards the neutral end" The PH-scale has (as you certainly know) a base and an acidic end, the neutral is the middle part, not the end. Just thought it was funny... :D Cool project, plz do not put in the snails. :)

  • I can’t believe people actually believe in this evolution crap. Yes natural selection happens, but it selects from what is already present in the genome. Either strengthening expression of already existing genes or deregulating them. Mutations leading to brand new functions have not been Documented or witnessed by any branch of science. Fossilization is almost non-existent nowadays because of the environmental requirements, but in the past organisms were sorted based on density, mobility and intelligence. We find clams at the bottom because they hardly move and we find birds at the top because they obviously fly and their bones are hollow. I would offer a counter explanation, but it’s equally as religious as believing that nothing (literary) exploded and created everything that evolved into what we see today.

  • I remember a Creationist who was collecting money to build the world's biggest hyperbaric chamber in which he was going to raise lizards, and when they grew up to be dinosaurs, that would prove Darwin was wrong because reasons. I did wonder why he didn't start small with just a commercial rescue chamber for divers. It would be plenty big enough for a couple of skink eggs to hatch and grow three feet long, and then they could be humanely killed by CO2 and dissected. Positive results would have been enough to get funding for a larger chamber.
