In addition to this unique fish in the lake full – full of crocodiles. Another phenomenon – an unimaginably rapid formation of new species and subspecies of fish – the phenomenon puts Darwin’s theory of evolution to a standstill, as he claimed that this is possible only over a long period of time. But the little fish from lake Victoria baffled not only the theory of Darwin, but of many scientists. On the same place in a few years it is again possible to observe a new appearance.
