Electric fish in Africa could be example of evolution in action
... local electric fish have different DNA, different communication
patterns and won't mate with each other. However, they now have found a case where two types of electric signals come from fish that have the same DNA. The researchers' conclusion: The fish appear to be on the verge of forming two separate species. ...
