Eyes in the Back of Their Backs
On today’s Creation Moments Minute, a creature with extra eyes on its back!
The shrimp with extra eyes on its back lives beneath two miles of water near geological formations called black smokers. Black smokers continuously shoot out thick black clouds of water at a temperature of 660 degrees Fahrenheit. No trace of sunlight ever penetrates to such depths. So why do these shrimp need eyes at all?
Scientists learned that the super-heated water coming out of black smokers is so hot that it actually glows. The glow isn’t all that bright, which is why these shrimp need such large eyes that they will fit only on the shrimp’s back.
Nothing escapes the Creator’s notice – not these shrimp nor a life that is in trouble due to sin. God sent His Son to die on the cross, so that, believing in Him, you can have eternal life!
