How can that be. There r so much more pros than cons in having limbs..

I'm not so sure I agree with the scientist's proposal.

I just don't agree with their suggestions on this.

Interesting theory, but it doesn't jive well with what we know of evolution. Unless the climate was more of the driving factor here.
