Homework Help: sci

Posted by Trish on Saturday, March 1, 2008 at 11:12am.

Would someone critique my hypothesis?
question:Although most salamanders have four legs, the aquatic salamander
shown below resembles an eel. It lacks hind limbs and
has very tiny forelimbs. Propose a hypothesis to explain how
limbless salamanders evolved according to Darwin's theory of
natural selection.

My hypothesis: According to Darwin and his theory of natural selection salamanders evolved into limbless salamanders to adapt to their habitats. Salamanders evolve with a reduction of limbs to better survive in their habitat, either to swim with the ease of reduced limbs or for burrowing underground.
