Necropsy Photos of Dolphins in Peru

by Hardy Jones I have received three photos from Dr. Yaipen Llanos from necropsies of dolphins stranded in Peru along with his comments. - - - - - -
In the bladder, you can see how a huge bubble is compressing a vein and an artery in the dolphin.
In the liver of a dolphin, the bubbles are dramatically replacing the normal tissue.
In the mandibular blubbler, you can see bubbles spreading in the normal tissue, plus blood vessels are congested and hemorraghic, this last photograph is from a baby porpoise. I expect a fuller report from Dr. Yaipen Llanos shortly.
