My single socks and tupperware lids are chillin' somewhere and laughing at me.

*KTLA* The very simple creature, Xenoturbella, has no brain, gills, eyes, or reproductive organs, and only one opening through which food goes in and waste goes out. And although the animal was first described in 1949, its peculiar biology left scientists baffled for decades.

1. *KTLA* The very simple creature, Xenoturbella, has no brain, gills, eyes, or reproductive organs, and only one opening through which food goes in and waste goes out. And although the animal was first described in 1949, its peculiar biology left scientists baffled for decades. "The findings have implications for how we understand animal evolution," Rouse said in a Scripps Institution of Oceanography media release. "By placing Xenoturbella properly in the tree of life we can better understand early animal evolution." If you had biology did you learn about this marine creature?

Xenoturbella has a simple body; it has no brain, no through gut, no excretory system, no organized gonads or any other defined organs except for a statocyst containing flagellated cells; it has cilia and a diffuse nervous system. The animal is up 7.9 in long and has been found off the coasts of Sweden and Scotland, in Monterey Canyon off California, and in the Gulf of California. Have you ever seen one in the environment?

Xenoturbella's only purpose beside being in the food chain, is to help explain animal evolution; just step above having a lost sock. If you have a collection or a few solo socks lying around, have you found a purpose for them?
