Hi, Can you please post this:

We have a Mother/Calf Bottlenose dolphin pair who are both suffering a new skin affliction, and do not know the cause. 

We are seeking to know of from anyone who can assist, whether they have seen anything this severe and or similar to take appropriate directional action. Possible cause, noting that stranding (therefore sunburn) not likely, and fresh water exposure not likely. 

Photos below are of the two dolphins 5 days apart to show progress of skin affliction to assist. Larger photos are available on request.

Please contact Barbara Saberton at sabertob at optusnet.com.au

Thank you
Barbara Saberton
