11 Hybrid Animals that will surprise you - Wholpin

The Wholphin spawns from the crossing of a False Killer Whale and a Common Bottlenose Dolphin. To this date, there are only two of these specimen known — they’re kept under captivity on the Sea Life Park in Hawai.

The shape, colour and size of the Wholpin is the result of the mixture of the traits of its two parents. For example, a feature that demonstrates its heritage is the number of teeth of the Wholpin: a Common Bottlenose Dolphin has 88 teeth, and a False Killer Whale 44. The Wholphin features 66 teeth.
