Sometimes, History Repeats Itself

Last year, I went to Richmond. My best friend Amber and I hiked along the James River. This is when I learned the story of the Snakefish, a fish that looks like an eel, swims like a fish, and has the capability to walk on land. This makes the fish more like an amphibian than an actual fish!

In today's issue of the New York Times, it appears that there is a team of scientists who have been studying the archaelogical remains of some of the the first fish that transitioned into creatures resembling amphibians.

We live in awesome times with awesome research tools and technologies!
