Although many people believe Charles Darwin established thetheory of evolution after his trip to the Galapagos Islands, thisisn't quite true. In fact, the theory of evolution had been aroundfor some time. What Charles Darwin solved was the mystery of howand why evolution occurred, with an idea he called naturalselection. Natural selection is the theory that individuals bornwith characteristics that make them best suited for theirenvironment are the ones most likely to survive. In other words,the figurines in this Toob have come to be through thousands ofyears of mutations and variations that allow them to survive withinthe isolated habitat of the Galapagos Islands!
