Fishy Facial Features Of A Baby

by Christopher Paul on May 10, 2011

This video at the top of this post (I can’t embed it for some reason) is amazing and freaky at the same time. You have to watch it and read the article from the BBC.

If you watch it closely, you will see that the human face is actually formed of three main sections which rotate and come together in an unborn fetus.

The way this happens only really makes sense when you realize that, strange though it may sound, we are actually descended from fish.

Also, the three sections must come together at the right time and if they’re off, facial deformities like cleft lip can occur.
