ORMOND BEACH, Fla. - A baby dolphin has washed ashore at a Central Florida beach, officials said.
The Volusia County Beach Safety Ocean Rescue confirmed to FOX that a dolphin, measured between three to four feet long, washed ashore in Ormond Beach.
They said that the dolphin, which was specifically noted to be a deceased neonate bottlenose by SeaWorld, had no signs of trauma.
"We had a baby dolphin wash up ashore. It's not too uncommon, we have these types of incidents happen a few times a year," Captain Tammy Malphurs of Volusia County said. "There were no obvious signs of injury, so it could have been sick."
A necropsy is reportedly being conducted.
