Tourists couldn’t believe their eyes!

People were SHOCKED when they saw what emerged from the sea. Tourists on the Romanian coast were surprised by what they saw in the water. Along with the sea waves, a wounded dolphin was brought to the shore.

The dolphin was pulled out of the water in an attempt to save it, but unfortunately, it had no chance. Experts say it is a mammal of the Delphinus Delphis species.

Multiple wounds were found on its body, most likely caused by fishermen’s nets.

In the Black Sea, three species of marine mammals are found:

Common dolphin (Delphinus delphis ponticus)

Bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus ponticus)

Harbor porpoise (Phocoena phocoena relicta)

The Black Sea dolphins differ in both morpho-anatomical characteristics and their primary food sources. The bottlenose dolphin and harbor porpoise mainly feed on fish and other benthic organisms, while the common dolphin’s diet consists of fish and other organisms found in the water column

Based on these elements, each species prefers specific habitats: the first two species are predominantly found in coastal areas, while the common dolphin is usually encountered in offshore zones.
