Man discovers a new life-form at a South African truck stop
A Scientific American guest blog writes Man discovers a new life-form at a South African truck stop. "Then, one day, things changed. He was looking through specimens when he found something more interesting than anything he had ever seen before. It was a fossil that looked like a cross between two different kinds of animals. It had the wrong mix of parts. It was--he would come to convince himself--a single individual of an entirely new order of beasts."
