Our guest tonight on Inquiry is JOHN A. LONG, Strategic Professor in Paleontology at Flinders University in Adelaide. Professor Long has made one of the most amazing and unexpected discoveries in paleontology: evidence of internal fertilization in prehistoric fish that lived 380 million years ago. This means these ancient creatures were not externally fertilizing eggs like many fish today do, but instead were having sex.
