Photos: Meteor Jogja, Sorot Gunungkidul & Gunungkidul Post

A code 3 baby Sousa (assuming Sousa chinensis) or Indo-Pacific Humpback Dolphin was found at Kukup Beach, Kec Tanjungsari, Gunung Kidul, Yogyakarta on 8 October 2016 by a local photographer. The length was reported to be 40 cm, but it’s rather doubtful. No effort has been made so far to retrieve the sample. This might be the first confirmed appearance of Sousa chinensis in the southern coasts of Java. News from Joshua Wendy, photo from MeteorJogja.
