Fascinating if true.

Fascinating if true.

Have grown cautious about accepting a new species based on only one specimen . I truly hope this is real. I guess I need to wait and see.

TAAA DAAAAA!

Fossils of at least four Danuvius individuals were found in the Allgau region of Bavaria, including many key elements but no complete skull. The completely preserved limb bones, vertebra, finger and toe bones enabled the researchers to reconstruct the way the creature moved about in its environment. They also were able to study functionally important joints including the elbow, wrist, hip, knee and ankle. About 20 per cent of the skeleton was accounted for.

Wherever we came from, we weren't magicked into being by a sky-fairy. We created ourselves through continual evolution in response to challenges in our environment. We survived and prospered against the odds because we were brave and resourceful and cared for each other. I'm proud of us.
