Raymond D'Souza and his companions reached the Vadhvan beach and were taken to the WCAWA Center for treatment. The dolphin was approximately 7ft and 40 kg in weight.

    Wcawa volunteers waited there for more than 8 hrs to help him breath in a Normal position, but he was exhausted and was rolling in the sand. In short accidental injuries on the body caused damage to tail muscles and to the ability to swim leading to starvation and weakness, which caused stranding and aspiration of seawater due to tidal waves.

    More than one meter in length. Found dead near the shore. Total two individuals

    I and my friend Akhil went to the Mogral estuary for bird watching. Unlike other estuaries in Kasaragod district, there was not much crowd here. But illegal sand smuggling is rampant. While walking along the beach, we noticed that a flock of crows were feeding something. First, we saw only one dolphin like creature. later one more was found dead a few yards away. At first, we both thought it was a dolphin. It was later identified as the Indo-Pacific finless porpoise (from our photographs). Their corpses, which were almost more than a meter long, were not decomposed. No other injuries could be found except the crow's claws. From Google search, we came to know that it is an endangered species, so we informed to the Kerala Forest and Wildlife Department Kasaragod Range Forest Officer. As per their instruction, we dragged it to the shore so that it would not be swept away by the tide. And the exact google location also sent to them. And they informed us that forest officers will visit the place by tomorrow morning and do the necessary action.

    False killer whale calf. Necropsy by Reefwatch found roundworms in the stool which was charcoal black. Tiny cycts on the intestines filled with thin roundworms. ID of species done based on dorsal fin, flipper whale, melon shape. Patterns found on body that correlate with roundworm infection. Anisakiasis Anisakiasis is caused by anisakid roundworms. Humans are not the primary host for these parasites. Anisakid roundworms infest whales, seals, and dolphins; crabs then ingest roundworm eggs from the feces of these animals. In the crabs, the eggs hatch into larvae that can infect fish. The larvae enter the muscles of marine animals further up the food chain, including squid, mackerel, herring, cod, salmon, tuna, and halibut. Humans become accidental hosts when they eat raw or under-cooked fish containing anisakid larvae.

    Code-3 Blue Whale Carcass Whale Diglipur, March 03: A young blue whale measuring 12.2 meter long was washed ashore dead on Smith Island Beach of Diglipur on 2nd March 2022. As per report, Dr. Bhojane Nagnath Martand. Senior Veterinary Officer, Veterinary Hospital, Diglipur conducted the post mortem examination of the carcass of this endangered sea mammal on 02/03/2022 itself on the official request of the Range Officer, WildLife Range Kalara, Diglipur. As per post mortem examination report, 03 cut wounds on the right ventral aspect of neck region were noticed on the body. Post mortem report further revealed that the carcass was showing post mortem ballooning resulting into rupture of skin at right side tail region and oozing of black whitish oily fluid indicating putrefactive changes in internal organs while mouth was widely open, no teeth and protruded ballooned esophageal part through mouth was seen. Left side fin and tail were completely rotten and the skin part completely detached. Internal examination revealed that both the ventricles were empty and black coloured while lungs, liver and other vital organs were in black in colour indicating highly putrefred. Intestines were ballooned and blackening and highly putrefred. A conclusion drawn from the examination details and analysis of the visceral lesions that the blue whale possibly might have died due to severe haemorrhage leading to hypovolemic shock and cardiorespiratory failure. The wild life and territorial staff of the Forest Dept. then cut the carcass into pieces and buried them in a deep trench to finally dispose of the dead whale, the source said.

    During a recent fishery cruise onboard FV.Sagar Harita, north to Kochi, we have spotted a single carcass of dolphin. As the upper hump of the animal was very prominent the carcass was identified as Indian Ocean humpback dolphin. The body was almost couple of days old and was in almost in decayed condition. Belly was in busted condition and viscera was protruding out. So, it was difficult to take the morphometrics measurements of the specimen. There was no any deep external injury in the body. The upper beak was found damaged. The actual reason for the death of the animal is unknown.

    A 57ft baleen whale with circumference of 22ft landed in Code 3. A female with swollen teats. Ventral pleats end just before navel. There was a bhekti net entangled around fluke and tail stock showing it was a post entanglement mortality. According to Bob Brownell, the animal seems to be very thin; or could have starved after entanglement as they survive days and weeks after such entanglement.

    Forest Dept was present at the location.

    I saw these dolphins 5-6 times in the last 11 months, the locals who live along the beach see them almost every day from January to August. Group size varies from 2 - 5 or 6. Didn't count but around that number. During high tide, they would come very close to the shore so the distance would range anywhere between 25- 500 meters.

    The Dolphins are usually spotted in the water around the shore temple. This video was taken by Mumu - a local surfer who runs Mumu Surf School
