I'm just happy to see the proper Latin pluralization

Question, why is it that any fossil is representative of that species?  I know it is a small sample size to pull from, but there is the possibility that this particular creature was different, a hybrid, had a birth defect, etc.

I hear tell that there's a guy who has extensive experience adding and removing buttholes, having worked on 'Cats'.  Maybe he's available.

I like NYT's description as the "oldest all-purpose orifice."

Seriously, splitting Geek into Fandom and STEM was a mistake.  We get retreads on STEM all the time, and even threads that aren't STEM related like this one:  https://www.fark.com/comments/1​1109693​/Snowstorm-in-Japan-causes-134-vehicle​-pileup-Oh-what-a-feeling

But hey, nice jerb, cloacamitter.

Essentially, Occam's razor. Assume the specimen is an unexceptional example of the species unless you have better information otherwise. You can always revise your conclusions later based on new data.

And here I've been improvising all this time.

It's a good question, but you need to look at the relative probability that any random specimen will be different, and by how much.

A couple inches taller or shorter, an extra scale or two, those are expected differences. But finding one with three legs or a tail growing out of its head would be rare.

And what's the use of Fandom if all Doctor Who threads are in Entertainment? While Star Trek threads seem to be split across the two.
