In cool ocean news, Scientists at Cascadia Research Collective have discovered a new dolphin hybrid species off the coast of the Kauai, Hawai'i. The hybrid was the product of a melon-headed-dolphin and a rough-toothed dolphin, where the former is rare in Hawaiian waters. 

A two-week study revealed observations of the melon-headed dolphin and another rare species called pantropical spotted dolphins. Both species were tagged and will be monitored for future observations.
