How Evolution Turned A Possum Into A Wolf | PBS Science Video

October 5, 2018

Until the early 20th century, Tasmania was home to a very weird wolf-like creature. Except that it wasn’t a wolf. Even though it looked like a wolf. How did that happen? Here’s the science of convergent evolution! Want to see more of the interview with Rob? Click here.

After you’ve watched this video, you can go back to my Malibu Lagoon 9/23/18 trip blog, check out again the photo of the lobed toes of the Coot, and read my attempt at explaining convergent evolution.

This is an installment of the PBS – It’s OK to be Smart series. If no film or link appears in this email, go to the blog to view it by clicking on the blog title above. If the film stops & starts in an annoying manner, press pause (lower left double bars ||) to let it buffer and get ahead of you.  [Chuck Almdale]
