    1. Which reminds me of the signs Twycross Zoo put up in April a few years ago. These were in exactly the same format and of the same quality as the ones describing the animals in the compounds, but instead described extinct relatives; e.g., mammoths in the elephant compound. My kids loved it, too.

    WEIT, can you provide better pictures of Denisovans, Neandertals and Florensis than I have ever seen of the second, so that we can really tell the difference amongst the first two and us?
    Of course, that liar and others don’t accept the evidence from just our own lineage for evolution.
