Fossils preserved for Millions of years will now Proved to be Beneficial for Learning Modern-Abs Development: Scientists Expect

Fish-FossilsIn the North West region of Australia, recently a team of researchers have found some 380-million-year-old fossils of pre-historic fish. These are the musculature of fish that will help scientists understand the evolvement of modern-day 'six pack'.

This phenomenally preserved placoderm fish has been found in the Gogo Formation region. It is a sedimentary formation of rocks in the Kimberley region of north-western Australia that is known for being a trove of conserved fossil fishes.

When we talk about placoderms, these are an extinct group of fish that includes some of the original jawed fishes as well.

This discovery can prove to be a really beneficial and exclusive one for the scientists as it will help them learn the development of modern-day abs.

The researchers who will be working on this theory belong to Uppsala University in Sweden. According to them, the muscles and soft tissues of this fish have been well preserved since a lengthy period.

Generally, bones and teeth get fossilized far more easily than soft tissues and therefore these are left as the only traces of animal remains. This is the reason why areas that are considered as the rare fossil localities for safeguarding soft tissues, are valuable.
