  1. I just learned blue whales and dolphins are apparently ungulates, like horses, goats, and donkeys..... Science.

      Is that why their meat is so tasty?

      ...dafak is a ungulatte

      They evolved from land-dwelling mammals that had hooves. It's even said that Hippo's are a result of co-divergent evolution for the whale ancestor (I think it's either Pakicetus or Indohyus) Cetacean evolution FASCINATES me.

      Very interesting. I never would have guessed dolphins and whales would have had land-based ancestors.

      Even more interestingly, bowhead whales have an internal pelvic structure that serves no purpose and is a remnant from their land-dwelling ancestor.

      I'd read they evolved from a divergent ancestor before, but I had no idea they were still within that classification. I thought they'd evolved enough to be considered separate families by this point.

      Pakicetus is considered to be within the order of Cetacea.

      Science is fun.

      Holy shit, I knew that... I actually knew that!

      Be right back, time to dance.

      Dolphins are also rapists. The more you know!

      We are cousins of everything that has ever lived, when you look at DNA. Life's ancestry is all-encompassing and beautiful.

      It's simply incredible what evolution does. The blowholes of cetaceans are merely modified nostrils.

      We actually share a lot of DNA with cabbage.

      In all seriousness, I myself have always been interested in evolution as well. The hard part is not getting irrelevant facts mixed together.

      Once an ungulate always an ungulate, that's how evolution works, it's also why statements like 'humans are no longer monkeys', is /very/ untrue.

      so many notifications for dolphins
