Oh dear – it seems the earth was quite a bit warmer in the past:

The fossilised bones of two ancient hippos have been found in Norfolk.

They are said to be more than 450,000 years old and were recovered from a quarry along with horse, hyena, fish and a variety of rodent remains.

Researchers believe the fossils open a new window on the UK’s past in the early Middle Pleistocene when average temperatures were about 2C higher.

Do you suppose the hippos were burning fossil fuels before becoming fossils?
