Fun Fact: Inside the Dolphin Flippers

Fun facts about dolphins

While most people know dolphins (and whales) are mammals, they don’t realize they evolved from creatures who once lived on land. One of the biggest clues to the origins of dolphins and whales is in their anatomy. Underneath their flippers are finger bones not terribly different from human’s. Even the largest whales have bones that were obviously inherited from a creature that had hind legs.
