Even though Ventastega is likely an evolutionary dead-end, the finding sheds new details on the evolutionary transition from fish to tetrapods…. Scientists don’t think four-legged creatures are directly evolved from Ventastega…. One question that scientists are trying to figure out is why fish started to develop what would later become legs.
No natural selection here. No evolutionary process. Nothing to report here.
Andrew, you’re an idiot. An “evolutionary dead-end” does not constitute a transitional fossil. However, if anyone wants to come up with an imaginary explanation, feel free to tell me.
