New dolphin-whale hybrid sea creature is the spawn of an unholy union

New dolphin-whale hybrid sea creature is the spawn of an unholy unionWhile surveying whales and dolphins off the Hawaiian Islands, scientists spotted a creature they've never seen before: a peculiar hybrid between a dolphin and a small whale.  In 2017, before future naval officers trained on submarines in the waters around Kauai — a place called the Pacific Missile Range Facility — the U.S. Navy hired marine researchers from the Cascadia Research Collective to study the native animals in these seas. After encountering a large pod of melon-headed whales, the researchers tagged two of them, to see where they might go.  It was then that the researchers noticed something curious about one of the creatures. It wasn't quite a melon-headed whale. Nor was it exactly a rough-toothed dolphin, which are common to the area.  They collected some tissue from the animal, and after returning to shore and performing genetic testing, discovered it wasn't either species, but both.

Both species belong to the
Delphinidae (oceanic dolphin) family, but the report notes that cross-species unions between them are unusual: It's only the third recorded example in the
Delphinidae family, and the first between these two species. The hybrid, however strange, certainly wasn't treated as an outcast. The marine scientists tagged the hybrid with satellite tracking GPS, along with a companion, to see where they might go. And it appears they stayed together, travelling some 475 miles over eight days, and diving thousands of feet beneath the surface. WATCH: Ever wonder how the universe might end?


Former Milosevic defense lawyer killed in Belgrade

Former Milosevic defense lawyer killed in BelgradeA prominent Belgrade lawyer who in the past helped to defend late Serbian strongman Slobodan Milosevic was shot dead, gangland-style, in front of his home on Saturday, police said. Dragoslav Ognjanovic, 57, was gunned down in front of his apartment building in the Novi Beograd neighborhood and his 26-year-old son was wounded in the right arm, the Interior Ministry said in a statement. As a prominent criminal lawyer, Ognjanovic served in the early 2000s on a legal team that helped to defend Milosevic at his war crimes trial before the U.N. tribunal for former Yugoslavia in The Hague.
