Dear list members,

we observed and filmed what looked like grieving behaviour by a striped
dolphin towards a conspecific.

The video can be viewed at:

While we are aware of similar behaviours by other cetacean species, we would
be interested in learning about cases of apparent grieving involving striped
dolphins Stenella coeruleoalba. Thank you for any information you may
