In 1955, an amateur fossil hunter found a bizarre fossil in Illinois. To this day, the exact nature of this monster remains a mystery.
Evolutionists believe that new information about gill embryology suggests gills evolved in the common ancestor of all fish.
Scientists once thought cave fish lost their sight by accident. Now we know they were designed that way!
A fish with sunburn? Not a chance! God provided a wash-free, eco-friendly sunscreen we hope to imitate.

God designed a clever coat of insulation that makes life a breeze for animals that call the arctic their home.
How is it possible to get such thick ocean reefs, if they had only a few thousand years to grow, after the Flood?
Did millions of years in the dark evolve away cave crustaceans’ eyes and the brain to see?
Biting opened the way for biodiversity, evolutionists say.
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.
The words “slug” and “festive display of color” don’t usually come to mind at the same time.
