My Reptilian Ancestors... Maybe

My Reptilian Ancestors… Maybe

They say, in our fam­i­ly lore, that 1,165,000 years ago our fam­i­ly’s dis­tant an­ces­tors were rep­tiles and thus we still have some trace of rep­til­ian DNA in us. 23andme con­firmed I do have some non-hu­man Ne­an­derthal DNA in me, at least. Who knows if the rep­til­ian story–a bubbe-meise, as my grand­ma called them–is true or not. If I had to bet, I’d guess the chance that this is ac­cu­rate would be about 0.00298347%.
