the history of the fossil bones of land animals is

to a theory about the formation of the earth,

time was needed for the large animals of the three
major parts of the world to become known to the people
who spent time on the coasts of those regions.

form our highest mountains were originally in a liquid state;
for a long time they were covered by waters which did not sustain any life.
