Spying on Whales
October 20, 2020 at 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
We think of whales as icons of the sea, but the first whales were certainly not like the ones that you see today: They lived on land, had four legs, and were the size of a dog. How do we know about the deep past of whales, and what does that tell us about how evolution works? In the finale of SERC’s 2020 Earth Optimism series, get a closer look with Nick Pyenson, author of Spying on Whales and curator of fossil marine mammals at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History.
