Who knows? Maybe the story is false, maybe it's real, either way, it's interesting, and it never hurts to look at biology from another angle.

I know, it sounds ridiculous, I even thought it was a joke when I heard it from my History teacher (as did many of you when I told you at the Museum), but the wholphin is a very real thing (or at least nbc news thinks so). Here is the source http://www.nbcnews.com/id/7508288/ns/technology_and_science-science/t/whale-dolphin-hybrid-has-baby-wholphin/#.UbKZfvb71Fo. Apparently, a chance mating between a female False Killer Whale and a male Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphin produced an offspring together. Even more incredibly, the offspring has given birth twice.
