Restoration of Kentriodon
Kentriodontidae is an extinct family of odontocet whales related to modern dolphins. The Family lived from the Oligocene to the Pliocene before going extinct.
Kentriodon is an extinct species of toothed whale. Fossils have been found in Europe, Asia, New Zealand, and the United States. Kentriodon was the most diverse of all the kentriodontids, which include three named species and five undescribed species. These were small to medium-sized odontocetes with largely symmetrical skulls, and thought likely to include ancestors of some modern species. Kentriodon is also the oldest described kentriodontid genus, reported from the Late Oligocene to the Middle Miocene. Kentriodontines ate small fish and other nectonic organisms; they are thought to have been active echolocators, and might have formed pods. The diversity, morphology and distribution of fossils appear parallel to some modern species.
