More on ancient whales

Last week Olduvai George (who is really artist Carl Buell) wrote about Pakicetus inachus, a smallish (coyote-sized) middle-Eocene ancestor of today's whales.

Today, he has a post up about Ambulocetus natans, another "walking whale" from later in the Eocene, with a promise of more to come.

(Look at the rest of his blog, too. It's full of wonderful examples of his art.)
