Zygorhiza, early whale canine tooth

Zygorhiza was an archaeocete whale that lived during the late Eocene, about 40 million years ago. This ancient marine mammal had a long snout that contained many sharp teeth. The nostrils were located towards the end of the snout. Although retaining some land-animal characteristcs (like differentiated teeth), it was more whale-like than Basiliosaurus. It had a snake-like body and small hindlimbs (including a mobile knee and toes). Many fossils have been found in the southeastern USA, including Mississippi, Florida, and Georgia. The type species of this dorudontid is Zygorhiza kochii, named by Riechenbach.
