Question

  1. Nov 5, 2004 #1
    At what point on the evolutionary ladder did humans develop ambilical cords in the woumb?

    Are there other species which have ambilical cords?

    What is the explanation for lack of ambilical cords in other species and why we need it during the fetus development.

    This is an area of science I never had the time to study. Are there any books on this very subject?

    I think I'm in love. Can I just follow you around and listen to you speak all day? You fascinate me. I just want to cut you up in to little bitty pieces and watch your brain work it's magic. I'll bet you asked this question because you don't have a belly button right? no "ambilical" cords for you. You are new and unique.

    I can only think of two mammals that are exceptions, the duck billed platypus and the spiny anteater which are egg bearing exceptions.
