Remingtonocetus harudiensis
Remingtonocetus is a genus of prehistoric cetaceans that lived during the Eocene, approximately 50 million years ago. These animals are part of the Protocetidae family, which represents a crucial phase in the evolution of cetaceans from their terrestrial ancestors towards forms more adapted to the aquatic environment.

Remingtonocetus fossils show both terrestrial and aquatic adaptations. Although they had already moved considerably away from their terrestrial ancestors, they still retained certain primitive characteristics, such as well-developed limbs that could function both as fins in water and legs on land.

The skull of Remingtonocetus usually has an elongated snout and teeth specialized for capturing aquatic prey. Their dentition varied, with pointed teeth for catching prey and molars for crushing food.

Approximate measurements of the Remingtonocetus:
  • Scale 1:35
    • Length 116mm
