Ancient whales


The Loom has a very interesting post today about Janjucetus hunderi, a late Oligocene (25 MYA) relative of the baleen whales from a time before baleen had been developed.

Thanks to Afarensis for the tip.

I strongly recommend that you buy or watch the Walking with series from BBC. Either look it up on wikipedia or amazon.com. They have: Walking with Dinosaurs, Walking with Beasts (post-dinosaur animals, mainly mammals), Walking with Cavemen and Walking with Monsters (pre-dinosaur animals).
