mtnroads...

Good points. I suppose I meant simple in functional/mechanical terms. Animals that focus on what is essential seem to do well. In the case of simple organism that adaptable, I think you're referring to the really simple organisms like ameobas. Insects, rodents, some types of fish and birds, microbes... These are all highly adaptable species, largely because of their simplicity.
