Cuddly Lil’ Bone Crushers

To accompany yesterday’s post on flu virus evolution comics, here’s a more in depth (and cuddlier!) one courtesy of Jorge Cham’s PhD Comics summarizing the work of Zhijie Jack Tseng, currently of the American Museum of Natural History, on the convergent evolution of savage bone-crushin’ jaws in hyenas and dogs.

You can also see a related comic version of this video, which is neat…  Always impressed by Cham’s animated thesis comics…  which you can see much more of on PhD TV!
