Data from: Hyper-longirostry and kinematic disparity in extinct toothed whales

Matthew R. McCurry & Nicholas D. Pyenson
Toothed cetacean (Odontoceti) lineages in the Miocene and Pliocene evolved rostra that are proportionally more elongate than any other aquatic mammal or reptile, living or extinct. Their similarities in cranial proportions to billfish may suggest a convergent feeding style, where the rostrum is swept through the water to hit and stun prey. Here we calculated second moment of area from rostral cross-sections of these fossil odontocete taxa, as well as from extant ecological analogues, to...
