Dreaming of evolution or observing a creature's metamorphosis can be a manifestation of the unconscious mind grappling with the concept of change, not merely on a personal level, but on a broader, existential scale.

Dream concepts like evolution can be multilayered, however. It might represent an internal dialogue about the impermanence of life and the inevitability of transformation. If you've dreamed of a creature evolving, it could be a projection of your own 'shadow self' - a Jungian term referring to the unconscious aspects of the personality which the conscious ego does not identify with. This could indicate a subconscious desire to reconcile with these hidden aspects of self, to integrate them into your conscious identity, thus evolving into a more complete individual.
