Canadian and U.S. professors are disputing each other's view of the family tree involving hippos, whales and pigs. Associate Professors Jessica Theodor of the University of Calgary and Jonathan Geisler of Georgia Southern University are disputing a recent study by Professor J.G.
Hippos spend lots of time in the water and now it turns out (or researchers argue), they are the closest living relative to whales. It also turns out, the two are swimming in a bit of controversy.
It sounds like a stretch, but a new study suggests that the missing evolutionary link between whales and land animals is an odd raccoon-sized animal that looks like a long-tailed deer without antlers. Or an overgrown long-legged rat.
