The Darwin Fish has been discovered in Canada
Alright, so this isn’t really new news, but it’s new to me and surely to a sizeable proportion of others. And it’s HUGE. Randy Boswell of the Ottawa Citizen reports that a few years ago researchers discovered an extinct Canadian fish with foot-like fins. This fish, Tiktaalik roseae, “has been hailed as an “evolutionary icon” because it represents the crucial transition from sea to land for some of the Earth’s most primitive creatures.”
Memo to Intelligent Design Creationists: This would be an example of a transitional fossil.
