I could not be more amused.
Scientists observing a small group of Australian lizards very closely, believe they may be watching evolution happen right before their eyes.
A variety of Australian skink - like snake but with four tiny legs - is slowly starting abandon egg laying and beginning to give birth to live offspring like a mammal does.
Skinks in the mountainous region of New South Wales have almost entirely moved to live birth. But the same species living in the lowlands along the coast are far more likely to lay eggs containing their young.
Yes, you read that correctly: we are, right now, observing a speciation event in which on part of the species remains an egg laying reptile and the other shifts to live births. It is happening, right now. We are watching it, right now.
That is so crazy awesome, I can hardly believe it.
