The body of a striped dolphin, rarely seen in UK waters, found in Minnis Bay, Kent

The body of a rare dolphin washed ashore in Minnis Bay, near Margaret, after yesterday’s high tide.

Although they are widespread throughout the world, the striped dolphin usually lives in deep tropical and temperate ocean waters.

They can usually be seen in groups of up to 100 individuals, and they usually feed on fish or cephalopods such as squid.

They are known for their crisp skin pattern, which includes thin stripes running from the eye to the fins.
