New species of fossil dolphin found


Scientists have identified a new species of dolphin that lived 25 million years ago.

The extinct animal has been described through re-examination of a specimen that's been in a museum collection since 1951.

Researchers think it is a relative of the endangered South Asian river dolphin, offering clues to the evolutionary history of modern species.
