In one of our center displayed troughout Italy, we have found a community of
about 90 bottlenosedolphins skinny, with inter-rib spaces hollowed in the
visible part of the torax. This is quite weird, considering that not all the
animals present this particular features, probably due to malnutrition.
The only work done about this topic that i have found is:
"Evidence for malnutrition in bottlenose dolphins photoidentifies in the
eastern Ionian Sea"
E. Politi, G. Bearzi, S. Airoldi (2000).
If anyone could give me information about this topic please contact me.
