The world is replete with mysterious things, especially in the world of living organisms. People consider something as mysterious when they face facts or situations that exceed their own understanding. We don’t really know how living things came about (how they were made). Something you make yourself will be easy to understand because you know where the plan (blueprint) is, but unfortunately, all living things were not made at the hands of humans. This is why comprehending developmental mechanisms will provide a significant clue to unraveling the mysterious labyrinth encompassing life. I always want to explore all things I consider as mysterious using science.

What is the basic mechanism behind limbs and fins?
*Limb and fin regeneration
There are animals that can regrow their limbs. It’s not that mysterious. Why can’t we all do it?
*Diversification and evolution of limb and fin formation
Why do humans have five fingers and birds only three? Where do limbs come from? How similar are fins and limbs?
