    The word before 'experimentation' explains what/who.

    The law of truly large numbers. One little change to a trait can lead to advantages that change a species so much that the former incarnation of the species disappears. Kind of like the iPhone. No new iPhone version was completely different from previous generations but the iPhone 3G is almost completely extinct today.

    That's not the greatest analogy, given that iPhones are created by the gods on mount Cupertino.

    Ancient alien #1: Great cookout. Can I help you clean up?
    Ancient alien #2: Yeah, take those monkey scraps and pitch 'em in the Rising Star cave.

    Maybe they didn't squeeze into the cave. Maybe they evolved in there, from spelunking newts.
