Little Nipper & His Tiny Flippers

For a site called 2Dolphins, we sometimes seem kinda light on posts about dolphins so I knew I had to share this cute picture that Nanny Karen sent me earlier this week:

This 10-day old baby La Plata river dolphin, suffering from injuries from a fishing net and separated from its mother, was recently rescued on a Uruguayan beach in south-eastern South America. The tiny fellow nicknamed Nipper is being nursed back to health at the NGO Rescate Fauna Marina reserve in Piriapolis, 62 miles east of the capital, Montevideo.
