Researchers have come across Anthropod fossils at a place known as Kerrera in Scottish island. These remains were found within the last week beside the water. According to the Reuters investigation, the fossils are likely to have stayed over twenty-five thousand years ago. The size of this fossil was about 2½ centimeters long without the legs being included.
These remains have a shape that resembled and an Anthropod with extended body split into several segments. On every segment, it was seen that there were two pairs of legs and this made them to recognize it as a millipede. The millipede was found beside the river and the researchers concluded that this was its habitat. Most plants grow alongside the river, once they die and decompose, the millipede got its food. This made them to set their habitat near these plants to be able to get a continuous supply of food.
With more study on the Kampecaris Obanensis-millipede’s scientific name, they discovered more about its origin. It is believed that life evolved from the waters and later changed slowly to live in land. The change of habitats was influenced by different factors that made them to develop other complex features. These changes took place like hundred of thousands years ago where every step changed slowly over some time. The plants that looked like organisms started relocating to the land after developing some stems which assisted them to start a new life in a new environment.
According to the study of these fossils, the first vertebrates in the land were the amphibians. They are believed to have changed from fish with oxygen absorbing fins which lived on shallow waters close to the terrestrial systems. In case you had a belief that plants evolved in a slow late, the study has shown otherwise that the change was fast. The millipede fossils showed that living organisms developed from simple to complex forms and moved from water to live in the forest. All the information about the research is recorded and stored in a Journal History Biology for reference.
Previous remain of a plant stem was discovered in the same place where the millipede’s was found. Although most of the fossils that were found resembled the modern millipede, the study showed this millipede was not likely to be one of the extinct group. The world’s ocean is believed to brought life to the land which was full of Forrest around 540 million years ago. They discovered that the legs of this millipede was not kept along with the remains.
In summary, in the last one week, some millipede remains were located at Kerrera in Scottish island. The remains were small bodied with a segments and a length of about 2.5 cm. Studies were made whereby the Reuters discovered that the millipede lived alongside the water where it fed on decomposed plant matter. Further study showed that life was existing in the waters and later after developing some complex features, they moved to land. The vertebrates that moved first to the land were found to be the amphibians, they evolved from fish with oxygen that lived in a little depth of waters.
