Re: HUMPING ARCHAEOCETES (SNIGGER)
>A large tail could make humping locomotion a bit difficult.
When killer whales go up onto iceflows after seals, and when
performing at Sea World, etc, what do you call the surface locomotion
they do that has them pumping up and down with their front ends as
they lurch forwards? Is this also "humping" and wouldn't the fact
that Orca do this today in the wild falsify the above statement?
