Researchers down under were surprised to discover 57 hybrid sharks off Australia’s east coast. These black-tip sharks are crossbreeds of two species and display characteristics of both. These sharks were able to interbreed because they were of the same created kind, not because they were evolving into a new kind of creature.
A team reports in the journal Proceedings B that fish gills may not have evolved to help fish breathe. Yet no aspect of the study explains how gills—or any aspect of fish anatomy—could have evolved given that we have not observed information-adding genetic mutations.
Chances are your child’s picture book of “scary animals” features a piranha, and the last thing you expected to hear about was a vegetarian piranha. But scientists have found one, and it is completely herbivorous!
More than sixty species of fish can escape their watery world and glide through the air. This unusual skill enables them to escape underwater predators and cover vast distances quickly. The design of flying fish may prove useful for future airplanes.
Flight engineers have discovered another source of inspiration—creatures of the sea!
What many people may not know is how the cleaning relationship exhibited by the cleaner wrasses demonstrates God’s design, even in the post-fall world.
The tiny tropical fangblenny reveals fangs when it opens its mouth, but unusual venom is the real key to its defense—and to the defense of its look-alikes.
Discovery of sophisticated eyes in a fossilized hagfish has dethroned the modern blind hagfish as the only observable intermediate form in eye evolution.
Walking fish, waterfall-climbing cavefish with a tetrapod-like pelvic girdle, and the gene that shapes skates’ gills all supposedly show how legs evolved.
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.
Subzero water is a death trap for most animals. Icefish, on the other hand, make their home in it.
Will fish out of water evolve?
In the twilight zone, bright sharks know how to hide in the light.
The fearsome piranha’s vegetarian version uses its teeth to shred plants, not meat.
Evolutionists suggest that we can thank an early jawless fish’s experimentation for the fact that we have right and left versions of our arms and legs.
Development of “pre-hands” in fish said to show how terrestrial animals evolved limbs.
Blind cavefish cousins provide evidence consistent with Flood geology model of earth’s history.
Migrating flatfish eye expected to flummox creationists.
Sticklebacks said to recycle ancient genetic information in “an evolutionary blink of an eye.”
Recently marine biologists noticed the importance of a seemingly useless small fin on the backs of salmon.
Leaping blenny leads the way to land.
Certain species of sharks have developed “mental maps” to help them find destinations in their range with pinpoint accuracy
It’s not easy being a great white shark—how can such a massive body ever hope to sustain high speeds in such cold water?
In April 2009 we reported on a study showing that mosquito fish can perform basic math tasks (specifically, counting and comparing numbers of symbols). New research goes a step farther, suggesting that mosquito fish have the numerical skills of college students.
“[O]ne of the fastest evolutionary responses ever recorded in wild populations,” claims a press release about recent research. But is it really “evolution”?
At least in terms of shape, the hammerhead shark is one of God’s stranger creations. Or was it a “creation” of evolution?
Did fish gills evolve to help fish breathe, or did they evolve to help fish regulate body chemicals? Or did fish gills evolve at all?
The beautiful clownfish possesses incredible navigation abilities.
After young orange clownfish hatch, they spend nearly two weeks in the open sea, probably carried by currents far from home.
The latest entities speaking in favor of evolution may be 400-million-year-old fish, according to researchers reporting in the journal Science.
A frilled shark living over half a mile under the sea has been caught on tape. Evolutionists and creationists are both calling this a “living fossil.”
Two very different fish kinds, tuna and great white sharks, have been found to have a very similar body shape, enabling them to swim really fast with minimal effort.
One cruises through the water like a heat-seeking missile, the other swims gracefully like a giant bird in slow motion. They are the shark and the ray.
Sharks come in all shapes and sizes, from the bizarre-looking hammerhead shark, with its eyes at either end of a double hammer-shaped head, to the angel shark, which has ray-like 'wings'.
