Dorudon

Dorudon is a early species of whale.  They lived in the late eocene in the last of the Tethys sea.  It lived along the large whale Basilosaurus.  It was mostly a fish eater and lived in pods so they can protect and escape from large predators.  Because it is smaller than the predators it was more agile and can swim around the large predators.  During births the females return to shallow waters to give birth in protection. Dorudon maybe related to whales but they acted like Dolphins and may have played with each other part of there social interaction.
