Fossil of ancient four-legged whale with hooves discovered

The fossil of a 43-million-year-old whale with four legs, webbed feet and hooves has been discovered in Peru. Palaeontologists believe the mammal’s four-metre-long (13 ft) body was adapted to swim and walk on land. Researchers believe the discovery could throw light on the evolution of the whale.

Super cool. We already knew whales were once quadrupeds, seeing it in action with a fossil is amazing.
