Porpoise - rather dead I'm afraid


Porpoise - rather dead I'm afraid, originally uploaded by ccgd.

One from the archives - shot in June 2005 on Brora Beach Sutherland.

A very freshly dead harbour porpoise, killed by a bottle nose dolphin. The marks of its teeth and snout can be clearly seen on the flank of the porpoise.

Dolphins killing porpoises is a pretty common occurrence.
