Here's a reference that Ken Miller cited in the AMNH debate on 2002/04/23:

Quote
Robinson, A. Jean, Kropatkin, Mona, and Aggeler, Paul M.  1969.   Hageman Factor (Factor XII) Deficiency in Marine Mammals. Science 166:1420-1422.


Marine mammals lack one of the "parts" of the blood-clotting system whose absence supposedly renders the system non-functional.

Mark Todd pointed this one out to Miller, having heard about it from some of the veterinarians who I work with, too.  I don't think that they mentioned this bit around me.
