About this presentation:
In a long-term photo-identification study on dolphins in the Indian River
Lagoon found unusual skin markings that had never-before been reported in
cetaceans. The markings resembled parallel linear scars and were
predominantly seen in females that had been pregnant, leading us to wonder
if they were related to stretch marks seen in other mammals. At the moment,
the exact cause for the skin markings is unknown.

Presented by Dr. Elizabeth Titcomb of Dolphin Census, find out more about
this new mystery, the research that led up to it and get your questions
answered during this 1-hour presentation followed by a Q&A session.
