In the search for a missing evolutionary link to modern whales, scientists have come up with an unlikely land cousin -- a raccoon-sized creature with the body of a small deer.
Scientists have long known that whales had ancestors that walked on land. Now a team lead by Hans Thewissen of Northeastern Ohio Universities Colleges of Medicine and Pharmacy have pieced together a series of intermediate fossils that trace the whale's evolutionary journey from land to sea.


Just an interesting theory. I can just imagine those Japanese whalers patting their thighs and saying 'here boy! C'mon!'
Makes me wonder where elephants came from. Mice?

Close. Ever heard of the hyrax? They're thought the closest living relatives of elephants.
