    The pygmy right whale, a mysterious and elusive creature that rarely comes to shore, is the last living relative of an ancient group of whales long believed to be extinct, a new study suggests.

    The findings, published today (Dec. 18) in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B, may help to explain why the enigmatic marine mammals look so different from any other living whale. "The living pygmy right whale is, if you like, a remnant, almost like a living fossil," said Felix Marx, a paleontologist at the University of Otago in New Zealand. "It's the last survivor of quite an ancient lineage that until now no one thought was around."

    Was it the last place they looked? That's usually where I find my keys.

    She never left. She had a moment. We win and just need to get over it.

    The story isn't entirely accurate. I believe one beached itself several years ago, and has been living somewhere on the East Coast
