Photo reblogged from Past The Town Of Strange with 45 notes


Our happy-go-lucky landwhale, Ambulocetus, relaxes on the beach with a cool drink and a happy butterfly. That pesky dodo is nowhere to be seen—maybe his head’s in the sand, or he ran out of sunscreen—but I can’t imagine he’ll stay away for long. Meanwhile, however, happy landwhale! (I dispensed with the spots, since he wanted to be blue in the watercolor version…)
People who haven’t been following my weirdness exhaustively (and really, why would you?) would probably like an explanation, so the short version is that Ambulocetus is a real critter, I didn’t make him up, known as the “walking whale” a fossil transitional form of the sort that make evolutionary biologists bounce in their chairs with glee. He’s got a whale head, whale teeth, whale wiggly little ear bones—but his blowhole hasn’t migrated up top yet, and he’s got feet. He was about six feet long and due to the way his hips attached, they think he probably moved a lot like a modern sea lion. I’ve taken to drawing him occasionally as part of my ongoing quest to light a candle against the darkness, etc, etc,* on the principle that everybody loves a cuddly landwhale, damnit, and the more people know about Ambulocetus, the better a world we live in. - Ursula Vernon

*And should that candle happen to brush against a few particularly flimsy houses of rhetorical cards, well, them’s the breaks.

Secrets of Whale Shark Migration Revealed: 
Brian Handwerk
for National Geographic
Published August 21, 2013
The world’s biggest fish are hungry migrators on a mission, according to a tracking study that mapped whale sharks’ long journeys around the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean to a favorite feeding hot spot off the Yucatan Peninsula.
And one whale shark’s incredible 5,000-mile (7,200-kilometer) swim could even help solve the long-standing mystery of where whale sharks give birth—an event no scientist has ever seen.
…
[The data] could help answer a question that has plagued whale shark researchers for years: Where are all the females? Quintana Roo is more than 70 percent male, and other global aggregations show the same gender imbalance.
"You can’t have a stable population with that many males. You don’t see that in nature," Hueter said.
"The females have to be somewhere, and we hypothesize that mature, pregnant females undergo long migrations to the middle of the ocean, near seamounts or remote islands … and that’s where they give birth," Hueter explained. "In coastal zones where the feeding aggregations are, their young-which are less than two feet long at birth—might be subject to higher predation."
He added, “We feel good about the hypothesis, but it’s out there to be tested. So now we’ll have to see if it’s proven right in the years to come.”
Few very young whale sharks have been seen in nature. And discovering where the animals give birth, Maslanka said, is “the holy grail of whale shark biology.”
