在德斯托的超市停車場發現的 "檢查 "海豚

野生動物愛好者從蘇格蘭北部的一個超市停車場發現了一群雌性海豚和小海豚。

這些海豚被野生動物攝影師Karen Munro從德斯托的Lidl超市停車場拍到。

這些里索海豚正在形成所謂的 "育兒艙",即成年雌性海豚與它們的幼崽一起游泳以保護它們。

育兒艙里的小海豚的年齡可以從剛出生到三歲不等。

凱倫很幸運地看到了海豚的表演,這要感謝她在超市購物的朋友。

凱倫告訴BBC新聞。"星期五真的很有趣,我在家裡正準備開始割草,朋友傑基和巴里-奧斯本發來消息說,他們剛剛在城裡購物時從利德爾的停車場發現了里索的海豚。"

里索海豚的身體是灰色的,與其他海豚不同,因為它們沒有長嘴。

與其他海豚相比,這些海豚更喜歡生活在更深的水中,這意味着它們沒有被研究得那麼多。

里索海豚最喜歡的食物之一是烏賊,它們的灰色身體上經常有它們與獵物搏鬥的痕跡。

在大的群體中看到里索氏海豚並不罕見,因為它們是非常善於交際的哺乳動物--甚至與其他類型的海豚,如瓶鼻海豚,也是如此。


A group of female and baby dolphins were spotted by wildlife enthusiasts from a supermarket car park in the north of Scotland.

The dolphins were photographed by wildlife photographer Karen Munro from the car park of a Lidl in Thurso.

The Risso's dolphins were forming what is called a 'nursery pod', when adult dolphin females swim with their calves to protect them.

The young in the pod can be aged anywhere from newly born to three years old.

Karen was lucky to see the dolphins' display thanks to her friends who were shopping at the supermarket.

Karen told BBC News: "Friday was really funny as I was at home just about to start cutting the grass when friends Jackie and Barry Osborne messaged to say that they had just spotted Risso's dolphins from the car park at Lidl while in town to do some shopping."

Risso's have grey bodies and are different to other dolphins because they do not have a long beak.

These dolphins prefer to live in deeper water than other dolphins, which means that they have not been studied as much.

One of a Risso's dolphin's favourite foods is squid and their grey bodies are often marked where they have fought with their prey.

It is not unusual to see Risso's dolphins in large groups (also known as pods) as they are very sociable mammals - even with other types of dolphins, such as bottlenose dolphins!
