360 million-yr-old Gondwana fossils of early land animals found in South Africa

Evidence of early land animals on the ancient southern supercontinent of Gondwana has been found in the Eastern Cape, South Africa.

Early land animals kept fish-like jaws for millions of years

Scientists have long thought that early land vertebrates developed legs for moving around on land well before their feeding systems and dietary habits changed enough to let them eat a land-based diet.
