  1. In my head there was a record scratch. Wait whales had hooves? Were they as big then as modern whales? This all sounds terrifying.

    • GREAT QUESTION! No, they weren’t that big. They sort of functioned like mammalian crocodiles (living at the waters edge, swimming sometimes, snapping food opportunistically in elongated jaws) and were about that size, which is still big but not whale big. They didn’t get big big until they got into the water where gravity is less of a factor. They didn’t get insanely big until one group of whales evolved a baleen for filter feeding. Filter feeding essentially allowed them to cheat the food chain by feeding from the bottom of the food web where there is just literally more biomass for them to take advantage of. It was unlocking that particular life hack that allowed them to become the largest animals to ever have evolved on planet earth. Literally nothing has ever been as big as a blue whale, we live in a time of giants, and I love it.
