Are you suggesting a whale's very small femur bone looks like this one pictured here?
You mean todays whales are smaller than the ones that lived then? I hear that there are fifty foot sharks, alligators and porpoises from that era? I
would expect their femur bones to be massively bigger than todays specimens.
Heres the old persons tale. In my kids day we had little plastic dinosaurs we played with. One of them was an Ichthyosaur. it looked like a dinosaur
with flippers, i.e., long neck, long tale, little head (like "Nessie").
Then I read they re categorized this dinosaur as a porpoise which changed its look "somewhat". Thats all I am wondering. if they changed one
dinosaur to a fish then what about all these other massive land lizards? Could they be marine mammals like whales?
If you had witnessed that transition from dinosaur to fish era you would understand why I wonder about that.
