MUST READ: Mind-Blowing FOSSIL Discovery Challenges EVERYTHING About Evolution, Scientists Are Baffled…

A remarkable  Chinese fossil is already changing scientists understanding of evolution.

The fossil is a long-necked marine animal called an archosauromorph, and show an embryo inside its mother, which is clear evidence for live birth. This is the first evidence for live birth in an animal group previously thought to have exclusively lay eggs.

The small embryo reptile inside the mother is an example of the same species and does not appear to have been swallowed.

“This combination of live birth and genotypic sex determination seems to have been necessary for animals such as Dinocephalosaurus to become aquatic,” Dr. Mike Benton, a professor at the University of Bristol involved in the research, said in a press statement. “It’s great to see such an important step forward in our understanding of the evolution of a major group coming from a chance fossil find in a Chinese field.”
