Ancient fossil exposed the Multicellular life existed 600 million years ago

Three circular fossils found in China are supposed to be from the world’s initial animals, dating back 600 million years. A latest research, which is available in the journal Nature, titled Cell differentiation and germ–soma separation in Ediacaran animal embryo-like fossils, discloses that the fossils, identified as Megasphaera, are multicellular organisms from 60 million years before skeletal animals become visible on earth in what is recognized as the Cambrian Explosion. For researchers, this has challenged numerous ancient theories about the development of multicellular organisms.
