    Although a high number of extant beaked whale species (Cetacea, Odontoceti, Ziphiidae) live in the Southern Ocean and neighbouring areas, only little is known about the past occupation of the region by these highly specialized, deep diving and echolocating cetaceans.

Kurdalagonus is a genus of cetotheriid mysticete in the subfamily Cetotheriinae from the Miocene of the Russian Caucasus. [1] "Kurdalagonus" adygeicus has been reassigned to Mithridatocetus, while the referral of " Cetotherium " maicopicum to Kurdalagonus has been questioned. Mithridatocetus is a genus of cetotheriid mysticete in the subfamily Cetotheriinae.

Known specimens have been found in marine deposits in Crimea, Ukraine, and the Russian Caucasus. [1]. The fossil record of Cetacea—whales, dolphins extends back more than 50 million years ().Hundreds of species are known, based on fossils from near-shore to deep-ocean marine strata and, occasionally, freshwater sediments.

The question of how land animals evolved into ocean-going behemoths has been a mystery for a long time, owing to gaps in the fossil record. However, recent discoveries in Pakistan have managed to.
