There are countless questions that scientists usually ask about life on our planet. The principle that governs all evolution, for example. The many discoveries of recent months shed new light on our past.

These valuable discoveries are not just about dinosaur fossils or artifacts from ancient civilizations, but about aquatic creatures as well. Mind-boggling news is emerging from China and in particular from a Chinese province whose recovery is named after.

China, sensational discovery: the remains of a particular aquatic vertebrate unearthed

Amazing discovery of the Chinese province of Yunnan, where one of the oldest vertebrates in history emerged. It dates back over 500 million years.

We are talking about the Yunnanozoo: it is an aquatic creature that lived on our planet around 518 million years ago and, to this day, represents the oldest ancestor of all vertebrates – as it has been defined by scientists.

This discovery opens the door to research and is considered a kind of missing link in the notorious process of evolution between invertebrates and vertebrates. The fruit of this study comes from a group of industry experts from Nanjing University.

Scientists have deduced that – thanks to very valuable analytical tools – the pharyngeal arches present in a large number of fossils are structures that form in humans from the fourth week of embryonic development.

Such a thing had never been seen before. Finally, the same structure is considered typical of vertebrates and even today the same is formed in certain species of fish (which do not have jaws) such as lampreys.
