Off the top of my head, I can't think of any animal that uses the wheel and axle for locomotive purposes. How come evolution never came up with the wheel and axle?

If you say the word "gullible" slowly, it sounds like oranges. Go ahead and try it.

Are you talking about the flagella? If so, that's microscopic. I'm talking about animals we can pet and cuddle with.

What are you talking about? Wheels work much better underwater than limbs. Think propeller. Heck, in the microscopic world the flagellum is practically a spinning wheel propeller anyway.

Sorry been a while. Oh my goodness has it been almost a year? Life has been super busy for me. Both husband and I quit our jobs to work full time on our business. Our company is actually making a profit. We are trying our darnest to not become part of the statistics that say most startups don't survive the first 2 years.

Anyway, full blooded boy here.
