A whale of a story and we are not talking about Jonah

You may have read articles, complete with images, showing whales with legs. Scientists claim they have found the fossilized remains of half whales, half animals that were the halfway point — a transition — as animals moved to the ocean to become whales. If you visit any number of museums such as the Paris Natural History Museum, Canadian Museum of Nature, New York’s American Museum of Natural History and Australia’s Melbourne Museum, you will find drawings or even full-sized plaster replicas of these walking whales on display as evolutionary evidence. At first glance those pictures look convincing, but all is not as it seems.
