The researchers were unable to find any evidence that the animal had an anus, which suggests that it consumed food and excreted from the same orifice.
Think about how our society would be if we had kept this characteristic.

Think about the first organism which did get an anus. Do you think they would be asking "WTF?" or "Why am I not like mom and dad?"
