+ - 40-Million-Year-Old 'Walking Whale' Fossil Found In Peru->

Submitted by minty3
minty3 (2942557) writes "Found in the Ocucaje Desert in southern Peru, the fossils belong to a group called Achaeocetes, or ancient whales, that possess both land and sea-dwelling characteristics. Over time, the ancient land animals adapted to water environments where their legs became fin-like and their bodies began to resemble modern sea mammals like dolphins and whales."
