    I caught a short nosed chimera a couple of years back while fishing on a school trip (on a boat). It was right outside of Drøbak in Norway and it was far cuter than how it was shown in this video.

    She speaks as if evolution was a fact, and there are lots of inconsistencies in this theory. Besides, the meaning of the word "theory" let too much for thinking, isn't it?

    Nothing is “more primitive” than anything else. Everything is just as evolved as everything else because they are all currently living. “Basal” is the proper terminology.
