The -Gmillionyear old fossils of an ancient whale found in the >imalayas foothills of +akistan give string evidence
that modern whales are descended from a fourlegged, land swelling animal. the fossils consist of part of the skull,
some teeth, and the well preserved middle ear of an animal that was C to E feet long, weighed 2-G pounds, had a
wolflike snout, and had footlong jaws with sharp, triangular teeth. It is the middle ear which suggests that ancient
whale lived on land "nalysis indicated that the animal had eardrums, which do not work in water and which modern
whales have only in vestigial form. Hurthermore, the right and ear bones were not isolated from each other. The
