My Evolution Theory: Humpback Whales Evolved From Camels
During this Prezi, there will be numbers next to facts that I found from other sources.

Citation
First Of All…
Skeletal Similarities
4 Both of their humps are made out of flesh and not bone. FLESH, not bone. FLESH.
THIS IS NOT BONE DO YOU SEE THIS IS FLESH. IT IS NOT BONE YOU SEE IT IS FLESH. FLESH. FLESH!! FLESH!!!!!!

I just really want to point out this misconception:
3
Camels DO NOT store water in their humps, they store fat. Camels can just go a really long time without water.
Sorry. It just drives me crazy when people say that they store water.

Diet
Camels are herbivores and humpback whales are omnivores.
The whales might have become omnivores because they could not live off of herbivore food in the ocean, so they became omnivores.

Story
This will be the part of the theory where instead of me rambling on about similarities, I will actually present my theory in a more story-based form.
My Theory
1 During the final ice ace, Eskimo camels became EXTINCT. Provided that the ice age exposed the ocean, it could have forced camels to adapt and evolve to the circumstances of the ocean. Eventually this might mean whales.
My Theory II
2 Why humpback whales? Because as you saw earlier, in the skeletal similarities, they both have humps made out of flesh. Evolved forms often keep things from their predecessors so the humps would make sense.
My Theory III
5 A very, very, very reliable source (aka PBS) along with other sources, all seem to agree that whales evolved from land mammals with hooves. That includes Camels!
Thanks For Watching!
I already did all the citation, so...
