The long slow process of evolving into a whale

The funniest thing about the latest PBF comic is that whales actually evolved from land dwellers. That’s always completed freaked my noggin: you are a quadraped the size of a wolf and you decide it’s time to head back to the ocean and start evolving into the largest animal on the planet. WTF?

Yeah, no blogging lately. I’ve been busy and haven’t felt like it. Fneagh.

    If you think about it, that’s no more weird than sea dwellers ‘deciding’ to flop out of the sea and evolve into the (arguably) most intelligent animals on the planet. If there were no branches of evolution that went a bit backwards or random I’d think it would be a bit too structured to be natural.

    Anyway, I’d probably want to be a sea dweller if my favourite food lived there too. Luckily my favourite food walks around on grass so I don’t have to fork out on flippers and goggles just yet :)
