This isn’t really the official scientific list of the Top 10 Signs of Evolution in Man, but it has some very cool points.

#6) The plantaris muscle is used by animals in gripping and manipulating objects with their feet – something you see with apes who seem to be able to use their feet as well as their hands. Humans have this muscle as well, but it is now so underdeveloped that it is often taken out by doctors when they need tissue for reconstruction in other parts of the body. The muscle is so unimportant to the human body that 9% of humans are now born without it.

Reality is often weirder than fiction…
