Indo-Pacific Humpbacked dolphin cataloging
      #139336 - 07/29/09 07:36 AM

Don't know if anybody is interested, but in Hong Kong, researchers have cataloged over 300 of the dolphins, nicknamed the "Chinese beluga." (Seems to me that the finless porpoise would be more aptly nicknamed the "Chinese beluga" but maybe they're going more with personality over appearance.)

Some of them are:
NL11 (Ringo)
NL24 (Square Fin)
NL102 (Tiger Stripes)
NL139 (Slash)
NL141 (Shallow Lead Notch)
EL07 (Scar)

Pictures of them are here:

You can also see some examples of injuries due to boat strikes:

Nonsense! I could be arguing in my spare time.
