At top is Northern Right Whale dolphin and bottom is DalTs porpoise whose absence of long beak-like snout found on dolphins has caused fishermen to confuse it with baby killer whales. 2 Rare Aquatic Mammals Being Seen at Marineland Two rare aquatic mammals, a Northern Right W h a le dolphin and a Dall's porpoise, are now on display in the large oval fish tank at Marineland of the Pacific. They are the only ones of their species on display anywhere in the world and are now undergoing training at the Palos Verdes Peninsula oceanarium. T h e Northern Right Whale dolphin was captured seven miles off the west end of Catalina Island by the Marineland collecting crew. This animal is very difficult to observe at sea since it has no dorsal fin and is a shy, easily frightened, animal that does not normally run the bow of ships for any length of time. The dolphin is a six-foot m a l e a n d eats 15-20 pounds of h e r r i n g per day. This animal represents the first and only N o rthern Right Whale dolphin captured and put on display for public viewing. The Call's porpoise is one of two species of porpoise found off California. He was captured in mid- c h a n n el between the mainland and Catalina Island. The animal is a male and measures five and one-half feet in length and consumes 43 pounds of herring each day. The Dall's porpoise is a very fast swimmer and in the ocean feeds primarily on squid. The vivid black and white coloration and the absence of the long beak-like snout found on dolphins has prompted fishermen to report sightings of these animals as baby killer whales. Luis M.
