How did whales adapt to their environment?
« on: 27/03/2011 02:30:03 »
Allan Michael asked the Naked Scientists:
   
I can't help but wonder how an animal like a sperm whale, which evolved from a land animal, became so successful exploiting food sources and even being able to survive at incredible ocean depths and pressures?

What do you think?

Did the sperm whale evolve from a land mammel?

I'll have to check that one.
