Simply amazing. A ‘balfin’ is a mysterious sea creature that has become ‘famous’ on YouTube, after it was known that it was born from the cross between a dolphin and a whale.
Difficult to see. They shared on YouTube one viral video that features a ‘Balfin’ (wolphin), a mysterious sea creature that has become ‘famous’ all over the world, because he was born of cross between a dolphin and whale.
According to Xataka , the strange sea creature that surprised everyone on YouTube was captured by a group of oceanographers from the Cascadia Research Collective organization , who spotted the ‘ Balfin ‘ in Hawaiian waters and did not hesitate to photograph it, as this hybrid is very difficult to see.
The experts detailed that the ‘ balfin ‘ found swimming near the island of Kauaies, in Hawaii, United States , is a hybrid that was born from the mating of a narrow-snouted dolphin and a melon-headed whale .
According to the publication, while the experts were observing the herd of whales and dolphins swimming together in the Hawaiian waters , they noticed that one of the marine creatures had “characteristics of pigmentation and morphology that suggested that it could be a hybrid”.
Apparently, the mating would have occurred when a female whale separated from her herd and joined the group of dolphins, who usually swim very close to them, this fact surprised thousands on YouTube .
It is worth noting that this is not the first time a balfin has been captured. According to Xataka, in May 1985, a bottlenose dolphin and a black orca who lived in captivity in a pool at Sea Life Park in Hawaii had a calf named Kekaimalu .
We leave the viral video on YouTube that was recorded a few years ago and showing Kekaimalu in action. It is worth noting that, unlike other hybrids, the balfines can have offspring, although they live little.
