Does this mean we're descendant from slugs?
"University of Alberta scientists say they have uncovered the fossilized trails of an ancient slug that proves complex life evolved 30 million years earlier than established by previous discoveries.

The tiny tracks, found in a South American rock formation, date back 585 million years. The fossil find reported Thursday in the journal Science, confirms what scientists had theorized was possible — but not previously proved — allowing for an important addition to the evolutionary chronology."
