A four finned dolphin

MSNBC - Dolphin reveals an extra set of "legs"
Japanese researchers said Sunday that a bottlenose dolphin captured last month has an extra set of fins that could be the remains of hind legs, a discovery that may provide further evidence that ocean-dwelling mammals once lived on land.
I'm never quite sure what to make of "throw-back" characteristics like that, but it is interesting none the less.
