Just a short note before the weekend…
Earller here, here and here we looked at the traditionally overlooked morphological traits that link little tenrecs to larger whales.
Well, here’s one more
that I just became reacquainted with. Tenrecs, like whales, hunt by echolocation. I think we all heard that somewhere in our past. I did, but forgot it in the last fifty years. Here’s the reference:
Gould E 1965. Evidence for Echolocation in the Tenrecidae of Madagascar
Proceedings of the American Philosophical Society 109 (6): 352-360. online here.
