The Aquarium #8 by Julio-Lacerda The Aquarium #8 by Julio-Lacerda
Dora and Don, a lovely couple who just recently had a calf (not pictured here). Strangely enough, their calf was born with a congenital deformity: he lacks hind flippers..

Pardon me for pointing this out, but part of the dorsal fin can still be seen on one of them.

The artist himself mentions earlier in the comments that they're based on dorudon.. I think he just tried to make them look as modern as possible, seeing as many cetacean reconstructions have them looking more like reptiles than mammals.

When I first saw this I thought it was a modern Dolphin. Then I saw the hind flippers. Their calf lacks hind flippers, nice detail. Megalodon at some point?

He wants to go for things that can actually be housed realistically.
