As nature intended, the Harpago Chiragra manifests evolution driven by circumstances. Like undergoing project. An unfinished one. One that we witness in our time and perhaps yet to reach its prime. The conch housing a seemingly perfect design, but necessity imperfected its looks. For by the needs to keep its distance, it grows the six digitations. Truly a beautiful scar, embedded in its genetic trait.
