5.1.1.2. Transitional Forms

THE POINT!

There would be "gaps" if we couldn't prove how different types of animals came about.

However, important transitional (transitional form, one that bridges an evolutionary gap between different types of animal; not just chimpanzee to human) fossils have been found.

In reality, every unique fossil is a transitional fossil but here are certain finds that represent
THE most significant transitions:


Fish to Reptiles

Reptiles to Mammals

Reptiles to Birds

Mammals to Sea

Mammals to Human

Thus THE most significant "GAP" fossils have been found!
