UPDATE on the gobi desert creature post

After some research, It has come to my attention that this creature could be, or may be similar to, the Triops longicaudatus (commonly called longtail tadpole shimp.) The longtail tadpole shrimp is considered a living fossil because its basic morphology has changed little in the last 200 million years.

Triops longicaudatus
is among the oldest animal species to still exist.
