According to the Dutch paleontologist Jelle Reumer the hummingbird is the peak of the evolution of the vertebrates and not homo sapiens. Of the vertebrates, birds developed after the mammals and homo sapiens belongs to the mammals. The hummingbird is at the peak; it can stand still in the air. / Volgens de Nederlandse paleontoloog Jelle Reumer is de kolibrie het hoogtepunt van de evolutie van de gewervelde dieren en niet homo sapiens. Homo sapiens behoort tot de zoogdieren en vogels ontwikkelden zich daarna. De kolibrie staat aan de top; het kan stil staan in de lucht.
