Ancient relative to modern dolphins found in New Zealand

A fossil thought to be part of an ancient relative to modern dolphins has been discovered by scientists in New Zealand.

The dolphin is thought to be a close relation to the ancestors of modern dolphins and toothed whales, and may have roamed waters around New Zealand 19-22 million years ago.

Judging from the size of its skull, experts think the ancient dolphin was about two metres long, similar in size to today’s common dolphin.
