Vestigial Structures

Vestigial Structures

Many animals retain physical features passed on from ancestors that no long serve any function. Snakes and whales have nubs that reveal their evolution from hind-limbed ancestors. Human vestigial structures include the appendix, the tail bone, and wisdom teeth, among others. Found in 10% of the human population, Darwin's tubercle, shown above, is the vestigial tip of the mammalian ear.
