"Human being is said to be a moving museum of vestigal organs".Explain

Answers (1)



Vestigial organs are referred to as useless body parts. They are the remnants of lost functions that our ancestors possessed in order to survive but became non-functional over the course of time. In humans, there are nearly 180 different types of vestigial organs such as the vermiform appendix, auricular muscles in-ear, hair on the body, third eye, nictating membrane and many more and therefore, humans are called as the moving museum of vestigial organs.
