Amphibians adapt fairly quickly to their environment. It's probably why alot of Earth's creatures have an amphibian background. Asexual reproduction is a scary adaptation if you ask me. Nothing but the food chain to stop them lol.

Yeah i've read about some insects that do the same thing. It's absolutely mind boggling if you really stop to think about that. That a creature could go so long without eating, breathing, blood flow etc. CRAZZYY!!!

Good point Paul, there are a lot of evolution experts who think humans won't even be around in the distant future, and that amphibians in fact will evolve to become high intelligence creatures. Lizard Planet!!!!!

^^^Gotta love the amphibians! They will be studying our fossilized remains and try to figure out why we became extinct.

It's funny you sat that Pit. Darwin says we come from apes.


My question is if that's true then why are there apes AND humans today? During the evolution process did a few apes decide not to cross over lol?




Seriously, in nature the organ/muscle used the most will grow and adapt. The cheetah needed fast running skills to survive, those who had/developed it survived and passed on those traits.

Humans are NOT the fastest, strongest, or even the best looking of Earth's animals. The difference is our brain. Ironically it's our brains that will get ourselves extinguished from this planet lol. Greed, hate, lust, addiction, ect....all traits of humans.



Think about it. Our most powerful asset as a species is also our most dangerous one.
