It is really not only shocking but disappointing to spot hundreds of dead dolphins along the shore of Zanzibar’s northern coast. But, what washed up these 400 harmless creatures to death is not immediately clear.
But, this much can be predicted that they did not die starving or of poisoning. Living in deep offshore waters, the bottleneck dolphins were found empty stomach, which led to the speculation that they could have not only been disoriented, but were also swimming to reorient themselves for some time! This is reported by Narriman Jidawi, a marine biologist at the Institute of Marine Science in Zanzibar.
Contemplating in the lines of March 2005 incident, the US experts were investigating if sonar from U.S. submarines could be responsible behind their mystic death!
