Warm-Blooded Fish?


(Mazrocon) #1

What do you guys think of this intriguing discovery. Is this evidence for evolution or just a bizarre fish?

Hi Tim,

I don’t see how it’s evidence for or against evolution. It could be, if the mechanism makes no sense evolutionarily. I would predict that there would be large mechanistic differences between the opah’s warm-bloodedness and ours.

I do know that opah is very tasty…

I’ve never tried Opah before, but it does sound good.

I guess the reason I asked what people thought about it is that it would almost seem that “cold blooded ness” is halfway a definition of a fish. But then this surprising find comes along.

Then again the fish in Mariana’s Trench was certainly a surprise.
