Biologists teach that all living things on Earth are related. Is there any solid evidence to back this claim? Join us as we explore the facts! We start with a close look at the origin of whales from land mammals, and then touch on the origins of several other critters, including our own species.

If you want to learn more about whale fossils and evolution, we have articles for you to enjoy on our website!

To learn more about whale embryos, check out the work of Dr. Hans Thewissen here: web.neomed.edu/web/anatomy/DLDD/index.html

For an in-depth view of whale evolution, read Dr. Hans Thewissen's new book "The Walking Whales" www.ucpress.edu/book.php
