Something Political but for the other party
That’s fvcking metal
I am Inevitable...
Translation: “We made a mistake when we said it was extinct.”
Well apparently me and weird birds have more in common than I thought.
imagine... this same thing probably happened to prehistoric humans a few times.
Or, humans just didn't see it for a while. When it was found again, a Miracle!!
How dare you say something so political for the other party!! I’ll have you know my party is best party and your party is poop!
... I wanna be invited to parties *sigh*
Soooo, what's the bird arsehole?
So since evolution doesn’t work that way is this clickbait? Not saying it’s of real just that the title is misleading.
@pleroma77, no really it did though, go look up the actual scientific articles it’s CRAZY interesting
@Not A Wolf, pretty sure I know the article or a similar one and this wasn’t the title. My understanding here is that members of related species evolved the same traits as a previously extinct species. More like a micro convergent evolution.
@pleroma77, yeah but it is technically classified as the species that was declared a extinct because of its genetic traits and such.
I thought it was very interesting because we aren’t likely to see this happen again in our lifetimes unless it was forced by man
@pleroma77, but the thing is, because both this species and the extinct one are genetic offshoots of the same species, they have almost identical DNA, and this coupled with they're nearly identical appearance means that they basically are the same species. Even if they are slightly divergent genetically, there'd still be no point in separating them, because they still fulfill the exact same role in their environment, have the exact same eating habits, mating habits, and environmental preference, and have all the same organs in all the same places with all the same shapes. If anything, it's more beneficial to science to group them as the same species, since it shows that sometimes natural selection can produce the same thing twice with different results each time.
@Marida Cruz, at WORST you'd just classify them as a new subspecies, but that still counts as the same species
