Jawed fish evolution explained by fossil

Scientists in China have discovered a new fossil which could help explain the evolutionary process of jawed fish. The fish, a new spoecies named Guiyu oneiros, is believed to be a distant relative of the lobe-fin fish group and is about 419 million years old. Scientists believe that this new discovery may be able to explain a little of the jawed fishes history.

More will be updated soon.
