Animals, such as the dinosaurs, are believed to have gone extinct 65 million years before humans lived on earth.However, according to the Bible and its chronology, all plants and animals were created at the same point in time only a few thousand years ago.Cambropodus was apparently a marine form, but the great majority of living uniramians are terrestrial.Very little is known about the history of the Uniramia until the Silurian, when the first myriapods (centipedes, millipedes, and their kin) appeared.

Ants, by far, dominate the animal life on lane in terms of number of , cockroaches are even further behind. (2015) Phylogeny of Dictyoptera: Dating the Origin of Cockroaches, Praying Mantises and Termites with Molecular Data and Controlled Fossil Evidence.
