The evidence from the fossil record is contrary to this claim. For example, slow moving species such as turtles, sloths, and every plant at low elevations would be in the bottom layers. However, turtles and sloths are high in the fossil record, with many layers below them. As another example, the fast dinosaur velociraptor is always found beneath the sloths, which is contrary to this claim
