Tiktaalik

From the university of Chicago website:


Tiktaalik roseae is an intermediate between fish that lived in water and animals that evolved to walk on land. Its fin is like that of fish, but it was capable of propping the body of the animal up, much like a limb.

I know our good friend Tiktaalik has been all over the media for the past few months, but I just wanted to take some time to honor him here.

What a neat lil guy.

Reading about Tiktaalik and his friends makes me wonder if I should give up art and restart my career as an anthropologist or biologist.

I once read a book about the life of Charles Darwin his enthusiasm and curiosity for evolution made a deep impression on me.

Is it time to tackle the Origin of Species? Maybe not just yet.

But someday!
