The suborder archaeoceti could be put up in equatorial vegetation in and just about inundate lands and advancing seas (Evans 1987). accord to Evans the archaeoceti were aquatic protracted species and reduced hinder(prenominal) limbs. They were well change to life along the coast and the absolved sea. As the Cetacean order move into the ocean, they began to develop current traits to help them to survive. The Balaenopteridae, which the humpback is a atom of, can be found as early as Micene (five to fifty- millions year ago). thither was an ancient razorbacked hog from this time spot called Megaptera miocene, which is exchangeable to todays humpback whales, covering that humpbacks probably evolved and appeared around the late Miocene era early Pliocene, and keep up existed ever since. The humpback whale has been track down since its creation, reservation it endangered.
