back

This bird went extinct and came back to life thousands of years after

Extinct 136,000 years ago, this bird came back through a process called "iterative evolution". Here is the intriguing story of the Cuvier's rail.

    If these birds were flightless at the time the Atol became unhabitable how did they get all the way to Madagascar?

    I think you have no concept of the word evolve. Tell me please what was the bird before it became a bird and who was there to see this bird come from Madagascar? Takes a big leap in faith to believe your crap.

    Or. more prosaically called allelic shift. But it is a dramatic way to attract attention. Cool bird! :)

    Please stop with this stupidity, you can't evolve the same species twice. Simply two different, similar species evolving from the same ancestor.
