Did Noah Take Flying Reptiles on the Ark?

by  Digger Doug

Dear Ashley,

I love it when Discovery readers ask great questions such as this! God commanded Noah to take seven of each kind of bird of the air (Genesis 7:3; cf. 6:20). God certainly included flying reptiles when he told Noah to take “every living thing of all flesh…of every sort” on the ark (Genesis 6:19). God brought the animals, including flying animals, to Noah (6:20).

Remember, the flood waters “prevailed exceedingly on the earth, and all the high hills under the whole heaven were covered” (Genesis 7:19). In order to survive, even flying animals needed a place to rest (read Genesis 8:6-12). The ark provided the perfect, safe place. Flying reptiles became extinct, but not until long after the Flood. It always is very interesting to study about the great Flood of Noah’s day.
