Chilean Dolphin Description
  The Chilean dolphin - or in scientific gargle Cephalorhynchus eutropia - is truely indigenous to Chile where it inhabits coastal waters.
It is poorly known, from a limited number of strandings and observations in the sea. Main characteristics are its lead-grey dorsal side contrasted by a white belly and throat and the rounded dorsal fin which resembles a mickey-mouse ear. The Chilean dolphin is poorly known which is partly due to its elusive behaviour and its remote and difficult to access distribution area in southern Chile.
