Ambulocetus ("walking whale") was a semi-aquatic mammal, cited by many evolutionary scientists as a transitional form between ancient land mammals and modern fully aquatic cetaceans (whales, dolphins, porpoises). Ambulocetus resembles a crocodile, and its back legs appear more aquatic than terrestrial. The fossils were found in Pakistan, the same place where Pakicetus, another claimed transitional form, was found.
