12. God enabled them to migrate as many birds and animals do today, and "home in" on the Ark. (This instinct to migrate might be latent, still, in all animals).Return

13. Essentially to adapt, migrate or die out! Return

14. They needn't have done - they could have lived on the same continent before the flood. Australia isn't the only place where they exist. Return

15. Plate tectonics indicate continental movements could have been responsible for this. Alternatively since during the most intense "ice age" phases the ocean levels were much lower than today they might have walked there! Return

16. Yes: The "behemoth" of Job 40:15-19 is thought to be a brontosaurus. Articles in the National Geographic Magazine (May 1954) and the press (Sunday Telegraph features 16.2.97) refer to fossils of dinosaur and human footprints side by side! Return

17. God enabled them to hibernate and aestivate as necessary. These abilities are thought to be latent in most vertebrates living at present. Return

19. Probably yes - but remember how God gave manna (Exodus 16:14) a kind of bread to the Israelites as they were fleeing from Egypt? Perhaps Gods "remembering" of Noah and the animals (Genesis 8:1) includes such a provision? Return
