Fascinating look at when the Sahara was not a desert.



And the Atacama Desert:

I watched the first one, the Sahara one, very educational, I never knew millions of years ago it was a sea, and not just a sea but one that connected the (now) Mediterranean with the Indian Ocean!!

Sounds interesting. I'll come back for a watch as well. It always amazes me to think big areas of Australia used to be under water too.

I was surprised to learn that the bore that was drilled for animal water has hot water in it. Shows that the water is deep down under there.
