      What would you say are some strong icons of evolution?
      What were some that Darwin came up with?
      (This is not homework, I am just curious) 🙂

      If we all evolved from monkeys, why haven’t the monkeys in the zoo evolved into anything yet?

      that’s the same question I asked once…
      I don’t like Darwin !

      wikipedia search ‘keibab squirrel’:

      "The Kaibab squirrel is an example of evolution occurring through geographic isolation. The Kaibab squirrel is related to the Abert’s squirrel (Sciurus aberti) which is found on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. As the Canyon formed through erosion and separated the ponderosa pine forests on each rim from each other, the by-then isolated squirrels of the North Rim evolved into what is now a distinct subspecies."

      Every organisms is an example of evolution but i assume you refer to ones which make it quite obvious, if so –> Tree kangaroos

      Whales, birds, and elephants are good examples.
