That is what I meant when I suggested that the Horseshoe Crab is fitted for its niche in the ecosystem.lEofK said:Just to offer another unsolicited two cents, who's to say that every creature evolves at the same pace as every other creature? If an animal has evolved enough that it can sufficiently find food, shelter, and a mate then why should it need to evolve any further? In the instance of the horseshoe crab would it be fair to say that it's reached a comfort zone? I wouldn't say that the horseshoe crab is the pinnacle of evolution but if it's not being challenged I wouldn't see a reason for it to further evolve.
