Hello.

I've just read something about the turritopsis nutricula, a quite funny animal with an intriguing ability.

I don't know if this animal have already been the subject of a thread here on this forum. I'd like to have any feedback on it, because I find this fascinating, and I'd like to know what you think of it. though I know this kind of thing tends to draw philosophical points of view in the discussion; the "immortality potential" being, of course, an easy-to-light match in regard of the creationism / theory of evolution opposition.

Edited by Admin, : Improve title.
