The Frome Hoard

The Frome Hoard
Jumbled pile of Roman coins
The Frome Hoard is a hoard of 52,503 Roman coins found in April 2010  near Frome in Somerset, England.

The hoard is one of the largest ever found in Britain, and is also important as it contains the largest group ever found of coins issued during the reign of Carausius, who ruled Britain independently from 286 to 293 and was the first Roman emperor to strike coins in Britain.

Worm Lizards

Worm lizards dispersed by ‘rafting’ over oceans, not continental drift

Press release issued:1 April 2015

Tiny, burrowing reptiles known as worm lizards became widespread long after the breakup of the continents, leading scientists at the universities of Bristol, Bath, Yale and George Washington to conclude that they must have dispersed by rafting across oceans soon after the extinction of the dinosaurs, rather than by continental drift as previously thought.

The scientists used information from fossils and DNA from living species to create a molecular clock to give a more accurate timescale of when the different species split apart from each other.

The team studied fossils of worm lizards (Amphisbaenia), a type of burrowing lizards that live almost exclusively underground. The six families of worm lizards are found in five different continents, puzzling biologists as to how these creatures became so widespread.

I was a bit suspicious of this story because of the date of publicaion - but worm lizards certainly do exist

Rafting across the oceans likely spread worm lizards far and wide.

Worm lizards, burrowing reptiles native to continents and islands around the globe, appear at about the same place in the fossil record all over the world, just above the K-T (Cretaceous-Paleogene, aka Cretaceous-Tertiary) boundary. These creatures are not particularly mobile, so how did they get there? The solution to this biogeographical mystery is startling to evolutionists but supports an idea long held by many Bible-believing scientists.

Worm Lizard Migration Map

This map presents the evolutionary view of how many millions of years ago worm lizards, after supposedly evolving in North America, arrived in distant parts of the world on floating mats of vegetation. This replaces the earlier notion that worm lizards were distributed throughout the world over millions of years when the supercontinent Pangaea presumably broke apart. However, models consistent with biblical history explain the presence of worm lizards in their many locations past and present without invoking millions of years or any evolutionary claims. Following the global Flood about 4,350 years ago, representatives of all air-breathing created kinds of land animals disembarked from Noah’s Ark, reproduced and varied within their kinds, and replenished the earth. Migration across land bridges formed during the post-Flood Ice Age and oceanic rafting on floating debris are two ways these animals likely reached distant shores.

  worm lizards however ARE real
but strange

The skin of amphisbaenians is only loosely attached to the body, and they move using an accordion-like motion, in which the skin moves and the body seemingly just drags along behind it. Uniquely, they are also able to perform this motion in reverse just as effectively.

Amphisbaenians are carnivorous, able to tear chunks out of larger prey with their powerful, interlocking teeth.

Rare lizard survives 3,000-mile flight and machine wash
7 February 2012   Somerset
Larry the lizard (Chioninia)
Larry stowed away in a holidaymaker's laundry from his home in the Cape Verde Islands

A rare lizard survived a 3,000-mile flight and a machine wash cycle after being unknowingly thrown in with the laundry by a Somerset holidaymaker.

Sue Banwell-Moore had returned from the Cape Verde Islands when she found the creature among her clean washing.

Ms Banwell-Moore, said: "I did scream, I was just so shocked. I couldn't believe how it got there, on my floor."

The Chioninia lizard, which has been named Larry, has been re-homed at the Tropiquaria Wildlife Park in Watchet.

'Little head'

After the initial shock of finding the reptile on her kitchen floor, Ms Banwell "sort of fell in love with him".

She and her family feared Larry would not survive the night after his double ordeal.

It was put in a warm box in the hope it would make a full recovery.

"He put his little head up, like he was reacting to my voice, I was just so pleased he was doing well," she said.

The lizard has been taken to a wildlife park in Somerset where it is under close observation.

Park director, Chris Moiser, said: "It is very rare - Cape Verde islands is one of those places with native species found nowhere else in the world, it's so remote.

"We have it down to one of two species but to tell the difference between these we need to carefully count some of the small facial scales, which is rather difficult on a relatively small lizard, which moves at speed."

There are concerns that the washing powder detergent could have been inhaled by the lizard, which could affect its lungs and cause pneumonia.

So far, staff at the wildlife park say it is doing well and is "almost out of the danger-zone".
