This sounds like natural selection to me, which makes sense.

there are numerous studies going on with certain species of snakes,including Crotalus Horridus(Timber Rattlesnake) that are showing venom evolution. In certain areas,where food has began to become scarce,many individual snakes are found to be carrying neurotoxic venom,which is interesting as they are known for their potent Hemotoxic venom. The hypothesis is that neurotoxins work much faster on prey,thus lessening the chance of the animal losing it's meal.

Same could be said for the Oxyuranus microlepidotus (Inland Taipan),who carries the most toxic venom of any snake on the face of the Earth,in their habitat where food is VERY hard to come by,have developed(evolved) to have the ability to kill their prey almost instantly. One normal Taipan's venom yeild from ONE bite is potent enough to kill dozens and dozens of humans.

I know you won't agree Arch,but it appears to me that it is evolution in action.

Can't agree on everything, I suppose, although I understand that species do change over time, and in the literal sense of the word, they do evolve. I just don't think that they change as much as certain theories would have us believe.

Careful now, mutants are never portrayed well in the movies. People may start to think you have real big lips so you can shuck the soybeans right out of their pods.

I've been accused of many things but never of having Mick Jagger lips. :D Lord, I'd hate to have to put lipstick on those!

I want to be a mutant like the Incredible Hulk. :)

I'm going to show my somewhat redneck side here.. but the only thing that comes to mind when people say Degeneration is Triple H and the Heartbreak Kid. :D

Hey, I don't watch that nonsense, and some would consider me redneck.
