Description

Ambulocetus is a fossil genus, that lived in a tropical damp environment.  Scientists consider it a transitional fossil, because of the following features, 1. it had an adaptation in the nose that allowed it to swallow freshwater, 2. its periotic bones had a structure like those of whales, enabling it to hear underwater.
