The Indian Ocean tsunami that killed hundreds of thousands of people several years ago also destroyed many of the coral reefs of Indonesia. These reefs are bouncing back with surprising speed, showing how quickly life can recover from a catastrophe.
If we did find a plesiosaur today, would that really be enough to convince an evolutionist? As much as some would like to believe that a modern-day plesiosaur has been found, there really is no good evidence at this time. This argument is one more that we believe Christians should not use.
Each man-of-war is a collection of four types of animals. These animals are called zooids and they make up a colony. Each zooid has a different role in the life of the colony. But how did these distinct, yet connected animals ever learn to function together?
The diversity and streamlined design of fish and sharks testifies to the God of creation, not to the mindless process of evolution.
Biting opened the way for biodiversity, evolutionists say.
Tiny technology—an environmentally matched biological cloaking device—hides shrimp in plain sight.
As researchers examined the “simple” comb jellies, they were baffled by their complexity.
The creature Pakicetus was initially regarded as a primitive whale, while further analysis confirms it was a land-dwelling mammal.
For sea urchins, a broken tooth reveals an incredible design.

Before modern cameras and technology, the inky blackness of the deep barred its mysteries from human eyes. But now these wonders are coming to light.
The terror of the high seas, the Portuguese man-of-war is not a single animal but a colony working together.
For humans and other animals, oxygen is critical to survival. But for tiny jellyfish-like creatures living on the floor of the Mediterranean Sea, oxygen is nothing special.
Genesis 1 makes no mention of DVD players, of course, and we’re certainly not saying God had such technology in mind when He designed sea life. But mantis shrimp have “the most complex vision systems known to science” that, reportedly, may one day inspire better DVD players.
Sightings of dugongs by early seafarers possibly gave rise to the mythology of mermaids and sirens.
A rare and dangerous colossal squid, its tentacles bristling with suckers and curved hooks for snagging prey, has been captured in the Ross Sea in Antarctica.
Jellyfish, a clever hunter for a creature with no brain
The world’s coral reefs provide some of the most spectacular natural colour on the planet.
Lobsters, crabs, crayfish, prawns … seafood lovers everywhere relish the mention of such culinary delights. But there’s much more to know about these shellfish than how tastily they can be served.
With green blood, three hearts, and able to change colour in a flash, it sounds like a ‘weird aliens’ movie creature. Actually, the cuttlefish is a seafood delicacy.
Teremedia's 'World of Whales' exhibition was at the Auckland Museum, New Zealand, June to September 1996, including two creatures which are claimed to be ancestors of the whales.
A class of molluscs known as cephalopods, which includes the squid, are amazingly fast-moving creatures.
Fossils of the tadpole shrimp Triops are found in rocks which evolutionists date at 200 million years old — yet it is alive and unchanged today.
The Creator offers few sights more incredible, and yet more delicately beautiful, than a living sea horse. It swims erect and slowly, with its tail twisting forward to perhaps grip a seaweed frond.
Charles Darwin observed coral atolls in the south seas which were more than 1,000 metres (3,000 feet) thick. He believed that this proved that millions of years must have elapsed.
One type of crab has no shell of its own, but uses the discarded shells of other sea creatures. It is known as the hermit crab.
Starfish and sea lilies are wonderfully unique creatures, but over the years they have caused many problems for evolutionists.
How Long Does a Coral Reef Take to Grow?
At least two species of freshwater snail are able to grow big enough so that they can’t fit in their enemy’s mouth.
