All mammals share at least three physical characteristics; hair, three ear bones (incus, malleus, and stapes) and the ability to produce milk. Below one will find skull replicas of marine mammals.

The Rise of Marine Mammals also describes exciting breakthroughs that rely on new techniques of study, including 3-D imaging, and molecular, finite element, and morphometric analyses, which have enhanced scientists’ understanding of everything from the anatomy of fetal whales to the genes behind limb loss in cetaceans. Mammalogists. The purpose of this study is to clarify the sea otter (Enhydra lutris) as a complete aquatic species, based on its unique hindlimb morphology and functional us investigators have morphologically described the muscles and skeleton of E. lutris appendages [2, 15,16,17], but there have been no comparative morphological studies between E. lutris and other closely Cited by: 2.
