Image Caption: City of Merida, Yucatan. On the coast are sink holes
which are thought to be related to
the Chicxulup Crater. Merida is near the
center of the crater. Geologist theorize that
the crater was created about 65 million years
ago by the same asteroid or comet that
may have led to the extinction of the
dinosaurs.
