GIant Whale Fossil Found in Peru

Researchers were recently working in the desert badlands of coastal Peru and unearthed the skull of a giant toothed whale. The deposits that held the skull were middle Miocene in age (about 12 million years ago) and the teeth were enormous. Follow this link for pictures, diagrams and a short video by the head researcher. Wow!
