Evolution in California Caves

It was announced Tuesday that 27 new animal species have been discovered in the caves of the Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks in California. Among the discoveries is a wood louse so translucent that its internal organs are visible, including its bright yellow liver.

Park officials said the cave-dwelling invertebrates can tell scientists a lot about evolution because of their sensitivity to surroundings.

Joel Despain, who helped explore the caves, is quoted as saying 'Not only are these animals new to science, but they're adapted to very specific environments — some of them, to a single room in one cave'
