Interesting article, thanks.

I was shocked when I read: "The strange creature called Dickinsonia, which grew up to 1.4 metres in length" ... because my first impression from the picture was "thumbprint" :oops:

Bill; these gems of scientific journalism you regularly supply are always fantastic. I'm sure I am not the only one that appreciates them so. Please, keep it up.
