New Zealand tree caught in time warp

sciencehabit (1205606) writes "A eukalyptus-like tree from New Zealand is still waging a battle that should have ended over 500 years ago. The tree continues to sport evolutionary adaptations, such as barbed leaves, to protect it from a large, flightless bird known as a moa. There's just one problem: the moa went extinct around 1500 AD."

I love this story. A true genetic and evolution mystery. It's also a blow to the creationist folks. If they believe a creator is behind all that we see and hear, then the creator is slacking off on the job or is just play stupid.
