Many people are aware that opposable thumbs are a special characteristic of mammals, especially primates. So imagine the surprise when scientists unearthed a pterosaur (reptile) in northeast China with opposable thumbs. This would enable it to climb trees, hunt for bugs, and do other activities typical of monkeys. They called it a Monkeydactyl.
The more we discover the diversity and unique survival features of plants and animals on the earth, the more it points to an intelligent Designer of great power and creative wisdom. The Psalmist has it right: “Ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds of the air, and they will tell you, or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish of the sea inform you. Which of all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this?” (Job 12:7-9).
