Dolphin with hind limbs caught alive in Japan!

Predictably, the fundies deny this has anything to do with evolution. See also this post for some particularly tortured logic on how this “does not necessarily support the idea of macro-evolution” 8-)

See also the 5 min video (RM or QT) linked from the PBS series Evolution site’s page about whale evolution.

Quick update: I didn’t notice until now; on the same talkorigins.org page I linked earlier in this post there’s a picture of a dolphin embryo clearly showing hind limb buds! (“h”, below) Normally however they “degenerate before birth”.  Not in this case it seems :)

    alyissa gimenez: it appears to be an adult and it was captured and taken to an aquarium as I recall… (I’d rather they took some pictures and let it go, personally)
