To commemorate Darwin’s 200th Birthday

Scientists believe they’ve found the first animal. That is to say, the animal from which every other animal – humans, dolphins, cats, squid, snails, eels, mosquitoes… EVERYTHING we call “animal” – evolved. This is open to debate at present – the previous candidate was the sponge, but now we’ve got a new one. And maybe they’re right this time? We’ll find out as the evidence is accumulated and analyzed. (Pssst, Hey creationists: That’s how science works.)
