Discovery of the tooth of a baby in Teeta shows that sauropods and other dinosaurs didn’t just come to the circumpolar area at a time (as was assumed by some previous researchers), but also multiplied in these places, and probably lived there permanently. This conclusion is confirmed by and made in Teeta finds of bones of young individuals of stegosaurus — dinosaurs with plates and spikes on the back.

Earlier in Teeta found as warm-blooded animals (theropoda dinosaurs, mammal-like reptiles of tritylodonts and ancient mammals), and obviously cold blooded (salamanders, turtles, lizards). This composition indicates a temperate climate which existed on the territory of modern Yakutia 145-140 thousand years ago.
