Greetings MARMAM,

I am pleased to share our newest note titled "Spinner Dolphin with Evidence
of Shark Interaction on Utila Island, Honduras" out in the Caribbean
Journal of Science.

Brown, T.W., Murcia, F.V., Garcia, A., Ramos, E.A. (2024). Spinner Dolphin
with Evidence of Shark Interaction on Utila Island, Honduras. Caribbean
Journal of Science, 54(1), 32-35. doi: 10.18475/cjos.v54i1.a5

*Abstract*
Stranding events of marine mammals provide valuable opportunities to study
their biology, health, and causes for mortality, such as interactions with
predators. Here we document the stranding of a deceased adult spinner
dolphin (Stenella longirostris) with a shark bite (possibly an injury) on
Utila Island, Honduras. The findings may shed light on predator-prey
dynamics and scavenging in the region.
