A Canadian scientist has claimed that animal life may have existed 890 million years ago. Elizabeth Turner, sedimentary geologist and professor with the Harquail School of Earth Sciences, published her findings in the journal Nature. “If the Little Dal objects are truly sponge body fossils, they are older than the next-youngest undisputed sponge body fossils by approximately 350 million years," she wrote.
