The recently-classified creature is officially the earliest known flesh-eating ray-finned fish... Continue Reading Newly-classified fossil fish was like a
Lizards and snakes belong to a family of animals called squamates, and today there are almost 10,000 different species slithering around the world's deserts, backyards, forests and mountains.
