The giant bite of a new raptorial sperm whale from the Miocene epoch of Peru
TLDR
It is proposed that Leviathan fed mostly on high-energy content medium-size baleen whales, together with the contemporaneous giant shark Carcharocles megalodon, which had a profound impact on the structuring of Miocene marine communities.

Extraordinary incidence of cervical ribs indicates vulnerable condition in Late Pleistocene mammoths
TLDR
It is argued that the increased incidence of cervical ribs in mammoths is probably caused by inbreeding and adverse conditions that impact early pregnancies in declining populations close to extinction in the Late Pleistocene.
