How to use baleen in a sentence?

  1. Robert Boessenecker:

    There are many other unique and strange early dolphins and baleen whales from Oligocene aged rocks in Charleston, South Carolina, because the Oligocene epoch is the time when filter feeding and echolocation first evolved, and since marine mammal localities of that time are scarce worldwide, the fossils from Charleston offer the most complete window into the early evolution of these groups.
