Greetings MARMAM,
We are excited to announce the publication of our newest Note in Marine Mammal
Science titled "Food-sharing in rough-toothed dolphins off southwestern Mexico."
Access the article here:https://doi.org/10.1111/mms.12727

Lay abstract:Food sharing is common in the animal kingdom but rarely reported in
marine mammals since it is challenging to observe their feeding behaviors in the
wild. Here, we describe food sharing by rough-toothed dolphins, an open ocean
dolphin species, off the southwestern coast of Mexico. We observed two dolphins
exchanging a fish back and forth during a complex series of exchanges from the
perspective of a drone. This is the second time this behavior has been
documented in this species and our findings highlight the need for further study
of the importance of food sharing in dolphin societies.
