...the team understood immediately that they had found what they were looking for. Tiktaalik may have been a fish, but it had a remarkable set of land-animal characteristics, from its flat, alligator-like head with eyes on top to its ribs -- suitable for both heavy lifting and, perhaps, breathing with lungs.
You'd think this would pretty much silence proponents of creationism. I predict it won't. Detractors of evolution now have two more missing links (one on either side of tiktaalik) that they may claim "scientists haven't found."
