Sea Snakes: Convergent Evolution
This is really cool. Two snakes that were thought the same are actually very different. They evolved from the same species but speciated and are now completely separate.

Story here.

I'm pretty sure that speciation and convergent evolution are different things KC.

Lots of penis jokes from you lately.

Do you need to have a conversation with Bucky or Muffsypoobear?

No, they don't seem to find the penis a laughing matter.

RE: Sea Snakes: Convergent Evolution
Convergent evolution just describes the acquisition of the same biological trait in unrelated lineages. It's more a useful fashion than anything. Like Bats. Bats are mammals with skin like webbing between appendages, which helps them navigate in the air. Bats are in no way related to birds. They're bodies are entirely different - they don't even speak to each other. I love them both, but in different ways.

DNA has really upped the ante with reclassification. I think it's great. Thumbsup The greater accuracy means better research which will in turn create more accurate probabilities when studying environments.


I love snakes... they're really quite clean... and anything that will eat a rodent is ok in my book. Wink
