Neither Fish nor Fowl

A new paper is finally detailing the rear portion of what's being called one of the most important fossil finds in the past decade. The creature, known as a "titkaalik," is a member of an extremely rare group called "tetrapodomorphs," creatures who are part of the transition from fins to legs. As usual, there's plenty of unexpected things that were found on the back end of this not-quite-fish.
