This kind of observation is exactly the kind of clue that helps someone like me imagine how dead whales end up arranged as fossils—and how those fossils looked when they were astonmartingo.com: Nick Pyenson. The emergence of mammals is discussed later in terms of the diagnoses of 17 well-established internested nodes that include all the major extinct side branches of the mammalian stem group .

Along with other members of Ambulocetidae, it is a transitional fossil that shows how whales evolved from land-living astonmartingo.com its name stems from the historical hypothesis that it was capable of walking on land, more recent research suggests that it was fully aquatic like modern Family: †Ambulocetidae.
