You asked if it was plausible, or worthy of belief.

God's creation is very good at surviving. We see that animals are very good at living even in very difficult situations. That includes the fruit fly. The fruit fly did not have to go on the ark because it was only land animals that went on the ark with Noah. Only a very small population of flies had to survive. The flood did not last that long.

Not all vegetation was destroyed. Plants can get wet and then dry off and continue living. Yes, there was tons of plants burried to create the coal beds of today. But the earth was completely covered pre-flood with vegetation. That includes Antarctica, and places that are now deserts like Saudi Arabia.

Some animals do depend on parrents for survival at a very young age. These were not on the ark.

We should compare their teeth.

Fruit Bat


Panda


T-Rex


You're right. They could easily have eaten the same things!
I am glad you agree.

WOW!...And you know all these things you state as fact how? I had no idea that biblical tales could be twisted to that extent!

. The incisors are small, canines are always present, and the cheek teeth (premolars and molars) tend to be flat and wide, suitable for crushing soft fruit. Tongues are sometimes long and mobile, especially in the nectarivorous species. In fruit eating species the tongue is used to crush food against the transverse ridges of the palate (roof of the mouth). In some species, such as the hammer-headed fruit bat, these ridges are highly developed.
Or, the wonders of creation. That a God would do an excellent job at designing these various animals.
