Interbreeding between Dolphin and false killer whale: There has been one case of a female bottlenose dolphin
) and a male false killer whale
) producing a fertile female hybrid that has been called a wholphin. She, the offspring
, went on to breed with a dolphin and produced a daughter in the Hawaii's Sea Life Park
. Since the offspring in this case is fertile, these two 'genera
' are really, by definition, a single polytypic biological speciesNote
: Other members in the group (12 living 'genera
') are much more alike than the two that produced this offspring in Hawaii.
MacLeod declared: "...in the order Cetacea, there appears to be few, if any, postcopulatory species isolating mechanisms as successful hybridization between many species, genera, and even sub-families have been recorded."

that presents the three, dad, mom and daughter jumping at the same time to allow us to compare their size differences:
In my article submitted to ISCID
, "Intelligent Design to Generate Biodiversity
", I answered to the excellent comments posted by Stuart Harris and by Jerry D. Bauer:
The first practical and elementary genetic formula to be used here is:If
= F1 FertileThen
are just varieties of the same kind or 'genos
' (as we read in the book of Genesis) of organism, no matter how morphologically different they may appear.
This will be further illustrated with this dolphin striking example, also mentioned in my article:If
) Pseudorca crassidens
+ Tursiops truncatus
= F1 FertileWhere
= male false killer whale (14-foot, 2,000-pound)Tursiops truncatus
= female Atlantic bottlenose dolphin (6-foot, 400-pound)F1 Fertile
= a fertile female called a 'Wholpin
', that itself has been able to conceive in three different occasions, her first calf lived for 9 years, the second died when born and this third one [its offspring], a female, a putative product of this F1 female interbreeding with a 8-foot long Atlantic bottlenose male dolphin
was born last December 2004.Then
and Tursiops truncatus
are just varieties
of the same kind
' (according to current nomenclature) of organism, not a different 'genus
' [or as the Bible presents it to us, the same and compatible 'genus
', not an 'evolving
', different and incompatible, as gathered by using the uncertain scientific nomenclature of (misclassifying them as) 'genus
'], as it is wrongfully and currently held by evolutionary scientists.No matter how morphologically different they may appear and in disregard of the common names given to the involved animals
(false killer whale, dolphin, wholphin
), these are just varieties of dolphins
Still, you won't read this full successful F1 (Pseudorca x Tursiops) x Tursiops
interbreeding story in indexed journals, at least not yet...
Pro Darwinians will want to continue the winnow game
by watering down this great example of variation
by saying that this only happened once and 'in captivity
', but that this 'does not happen normally in the wild
'. The fact is that they, these P1
, have a 'genetic compatibility
', as Stuart Harris declared, no matter their 'psychological mating preferences
', as Goldschmidt may have said it.
This 'psychological mating preferences
' is an aspect overemphasized in the current neo-Darwinian 'mind-game
' of 'divide
', in the darwinist's attempt to 'prove
' a fallacy, they want to convince everybody that new 'species
' are emerging all the time, when what we really see all the time is just varieties within the same kinds (genetic compatible groups)
.The sheer fact is that those misnamed varieties of dolphins can interbreed producing fertile offspring
And like this, I have seen that the misclassification of varieties as if pertaining to different species or worse, to different genus
, like in the example provided here, can reach the hundreds of thousands!
But, oh well, that's not important right now for the evolutionists, as far as they keep high the public ignorance in regards to this topic, in their attempt to keep promoting their sterile 'speciation
' fallacy...While evolutionists now try to violently stop alternatives to their views, they think that on doing so their failed evolutionary multi-theories may still 'afloat'
. But thanks God that today we have 'the Internets
A related example can be seen in the HybriDatabase
(confirming MacLeod's statement , substantiated by Fraser, by Nishiwaki and Tobayama, and by Reyes, etc.):
Hyb. # 1693. Grampus griseus
x Tursiops truncatus
. Intermediate characters suggest natural hybridization [Gray AP 1972]
This last one found using the: http://www.bryancore.org/hdbConcluding
: Then, by using this Intelligent Design
perspective, we can predict also that the real 'killer whale
' is just the ‘Saint Bernard
’ of the dolphins, and that is able also to interbreed producing fertile offspring with the rest of its genetically compatible 'mates', being them the rest of the real varieties of dolphins
: After posting this example at ARN
, I received a note from the original webmaster that took and posted those amazing pictures, linked here:
The photos were actually provided by Sea Life Park for the Waimanalo News (now defunct) that i was helping to get online many years ago.
You take care.
