Another link of interest is an update report and photos of the Hybrid Dall's / Harbour Porpoise stranded in the San Juan Islands, WA May 21, 2011. Click Here for the link. I don't know if they've come with a name for these Hybrids, but personally, "Hal's Porpoise" sounds good to me. They used one of my photos of a mother Dall's with her offspring Hybrid.
