How did hippo, whale and dolphin skin adapt to live in water? UCI study reveals evolutionary clues

Paleontologists have long asked if hippopotamuses and cetaceans – whales, dolphins and porpoises – share a common, amphibious ancestor. The answer, which is no, according to a study published today in Current Biology, was derived by a molecular and genetic analysis of the animals’ hides which are highly adapted to aquatic environments. Co-senior author Maksim […]
