"Jellyfish were some of the most ferocious preditors of the Cambrian marine environment." That's 600 million years ago. The dinosaurs were 60 million years ago. The first humans less that half a million years ago ... it seems like we've only been talking for around 100 000 years (that's about 3000 generations).
