Dr. Robert Carroll at McGill University in Montreal says, "The creature looks more like a land-dweller than previously known transitional fish." Paleontologist Neil Shubin of the University of Chicago says the supposedly 375 million year old fish, "sort of blurs the distinction between fish and land living animals." He goes on to describe the fish as, "clearly an animal that is able to support itself on the ground, probably both in very shallow water and for brief excurisions on dry land."
