Ambulocetus is an early cetacean in the early eocene.



Description

Ambulocetus was a fossil genus, that lived in a tropical damp environment.  Scientists consider it a transitional fossil, becuase 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.
