Reaching lengths of almost 70 feet, Basilosaurus (meaning 'King lizard') was the largest Eocene mammal. Originally thought to be a reptile, it was very elongated and had a vestigal back limb. It was carnivorous, and fed on fish, sharks and possibly other whales. Although the animal was not named until 1839, in the early 1800s, B. cetoides fossils were so common that they were regularly used as furniture, usually as andirons, in the American South.
