All Barbellus creatures evolved from a primordius. Probably, divergent evolutinon led a primordius to evolve to Barbellus ventralis, which adapted living under water, and Barbellus opticus, which adapted living on land (geographic isolation). During the period from strata E to strata D, Barbellus ventralis evolves by natural selection, having longer fins and a split tail like a fish. Later, as Barbellus aquaticus experiences some changes in it genes, it becomes Barbellus caudatus. Some of this species remain in the same appearance, but they eventually change as their fins lose their functions from living on the sea ground. Going back to strata E, Barbellus opticus who has had mutation of having

Unformatted text preview: legs, which enable them to hop and look for food faster, survives and reproduces Barbellus longicorpis and Barbellus quadrapeous. Unfortunately, after Barbellus quadrapeous changes into Barbellus hirsutus in order to protect itself from enemies by using its sharp body, it becomes extinct probably by a genetic drift such as a volcano eruption. Barbellus longicorpus, on the other hand, survives but their legs and body become shorter. Then, its antenna and legs become vestigial organs due to the survival of fittest. Primordius may have lived during all strata without evolving, it could just be that all evidences are lost....
