"Dinosaurs died shortly before the Ice Age"
But a frozen egg survived, and from it emerged later Urmel. Only children can believe in the existence of Urmel. But the idea that the mass extinction of dinosaurs took place just before the Ice Age has caught among old fans of Urmel. In fact, the era of the dinosaurs was ended about 65 million years ago, and the next ice age, began only last 2 to 3 million years. Neither the poetry of Joseph Victor von Scheffels (1826 - 1866), about Ihtiozaurus from Cretaceous, is more circumspect. Dinosaurs have died anyway at the end of Cretaceous period, and not necessarily because of the climate of that time.
