Norwegian scientists have confirmed that a single celled currently surviving species of organism discovered in the sludge of a lake near Oslo evolved approximately a billion years ago. Per the article:
The elusive, single-cell creature evolved about a billion years ago and did not fit in any of the known categories of living organisms - it was not an animal, plant, parasite, fungus or alga, they say.
Thats just cool!
Funny. It even looks like Joan Collins.
I like the part where he says that once it gets fed, cannibalism is the "order of the day".
Now that sounds like an ancestor of mine!!
