Description

Please note that some of these pictures are a bit gruesome.

There is a 30cm ruler for scale in one photo.

Here's a link to an article published in the ODT about this rarely seen species: https://www.odt.co.nz/news/dunedin/video-unique-porpoise-washes-peninsula
Note that Tama's name is misspelled in the article - it's Taita, not Taiti!

And here's a link to a video about the autopsy, which indicated that it was dead before the shark bites occurred: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7401sghuU0c
