This is a species of Stegastes diencaeus that spends most of its days exploring the coral reefs of Central America's Belize coast and feeding on its own algae farms.

How can 50,000-year-old Neanderthal droppings help us?

This was based on the 50,000-year-old Neanderthal feces, analysis of which showed that some of the bacteria were already living inside our last common ancestor. It is interesting because literally overnight we discover new tasks and the importance of bacteria, the role of which goes much further than we expected - we already know that the gut microbiome affects metabolism, blood sugar levels, the ability to lose weight, sleep, and also the likelihood of developing various diseases such as diabetes, cancer, sclerosis, heart disease Alzheimer, Parkinson and many others. In short, since our health is so dependent on these microorganisms, we should care for them and learn about them as much as possible, especially since the modern lifestyle, full of processed food and antibiotics, is not conducive to their well-being.
