The Carboniferous was an odd time as a whole, but the Late Carboniferous was really whacky and a nightmare for most people. This was a time saturated with giant insects such as the Meganeura, as well as some serious creepy crawlies like Arthropleura, a massive millipede. It was also an extremely swampy time filled to the brim with bizarre plants, making this one of the most unrecognizable times in Earth’s history.
