In Wadi al-Hitan, Egypt, also known as the Valley of Whales, a team has discovered a fossil of an ancient whale eaten by a shark.
The 40 million year old specimen has been identified as a Basilosaurus.
Inside this 60 ft fossil is yet another smaller Basilosaurus, scientists aren’t sure if this was a fetus or the ancient whale ate another of its kind.
Basilosaurus, meaning lizard king, lived between 40 and 34 million years ago and was thought to be a reptile when it was first found.
It had a smaller brain than modern whales, meaning the creature probably didn’t have modern cetacean’s social capabilities.
Another difference to modern whales was the creature’s eel-like body.
