Beaver Tailed Sort Of Otter

This enjoyable Washington Post article chronicles the discovery of fossils of a previously unknown mammalian species, an aquatic little fellow who “is the oldest known aquatic mammal, predating the river otter by more than 100 million years.”

Cool stuff! Go check out the article, and remember how science, while it does give us medicinal and technological miracles, is also really, really cool.

Unless you believe that these fossils were put there to test our faith in the 10,00 year old earth, or something.
