seeder Posted January 15, 2017 #1 Share Posted January 15, 2017 Quote Freak rain brings prehistoric ‘alien’ shrimp BACK TO LIFE FREAK rain in the Australian outback has allowed a prehistoric, alien-looking shrimp to emerge from out of the blue. A species of odd-looking crustaceans have been brought back after rare rain that comes around on average every half a century rehydrated the shrimp. There was so much rainfall in the usually perpetually dry Uluru, near Alice Springs in the middle of Australia, that it was closed to the public due to heavy flooding. However, one positive is that a marine-creature, known as a shield shrimp (or Triops australiensis) has reemerged. The creature is classed as a ‘living fossil’ as it has barely changed in tens of millions of years and is one of the toughest animals on the planet.http://www.express.co.uk/news/science/754209/alien-prehistoric-shrimp-uluru-living-fossil 9 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
