/ Bloody Good Things To Know / Education / Watch Out! It’s The Snubfin Dolphin.

 

In 2005 a new species of dolphin was found in Australian waters, the Australian snubfin dolphin. The discovery of a new mammal is extremely rare. Until recently the snubfin dolphin was thought to be an Irrawaddy dolphin, which is found in coastal areas and major rivers of south-east Asia, and is in serious decline.

Interestingly, the snubfin has a unique way of attacking prey… by spitting water at it.
