That awkward moment when evolution repeats the exact same designs in the exact same conditions... and it somehow works the second time. Gasp

There's another fish somewhere that has evolved in the last 20 or 30 years to either walk or had developed the ability to breath, I can't remember which and I can't remember where I read it or saw the information.

Here's a fish that's walking but I don't know if it's been documented as to when this function began in this fish.







There is also a lizard that has evolved on some island near Croatia in the last 40 years which scientists have observed. This is unequivocally observed evolution.

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Loved the fish vid! We have frogfish and batfish that are very similar to these guys but I had never seen that particular species before. Thumbsup

But are they really fish? Or is it Photoshopped? How many witnesses are there that those are fish? Three? Twelve? I'm only 70% sure those are really fish, they could be intelligent beings who randomly fly unknown aircraft.
