so true Nolerama, so true.
I did think the fingers looked funky though. At first i was sure it was one of those fakes that people put together from various creatures...
I definately can believe that all of life is connected. I have heard that male genomes are passed on and remain the same for ages if not ever?.- For example, it is possible to know exactly who the decendants of ghangis khan are because, having samples of his dna, his offspring(like half of mongolia-who knows the rest of the world-ok,not half but way many,,)
Even though it is thousands of years ago, his genetic signature is still preserved in living decendants. Quite remarkable, i find.
Got me thinking about the whole origin thing when it was mentioned that apes are not 'our ancestor' actually but that our roots diverged from the primate line long ago.
