Natures wonders: Turtle development (Introduction)

Until recently turtles appeared out of nowhere in the fossil record. Turtles take their bones and put them outside instead of inside. That makes them having to breathe by an air swallowing mechanism. They had to develop both the breathing method and the bony armor simultaneously. Darwin cannot explain that one: a little more bone outside, a little more swallowing air, while all chance mutations are luckily in sinc?? Not likely.

Now there are two fossils, one from 2008 and one this year that flesh out the fossil story.
