Whale Ancestry Elucidated
 
This may be old news to some, but I found it fascinating. Among other things, it is good example as to how scientific knowledge advances - often in a series of skips, turns, and blind alleys rather than in a straight line.
" How Did Whales Evolve? Originally mistaken for dinosaur fossils, whale bones uncovered in recent years have told us much about the behemoth sea creatures."
