National Geographic News has confirmed the discovery of a new, 2.5 million-year-old species of dolphin.
The new species -Hoekman's Blunt Snouted Dolphin- was not named after a deceased naturalist or marine biologist, but after a Dutch fisherman named Albert Hoekman who discovered the fossil while fishing in the North Sea.
