Irrawaddy Dolphin

The Irrawaddy Dolphin was identified by Sir Richard Owen in 1866 and is one of two species in its genus (the other being the newly discovered Australian Snubfin Dolphin). It is similar to the beluga in appearance. It has sometimes been listed in either a family containing just itself and in Monodontidae and Delphinapteridae. Nowadays there is widespread agreement to list it in the Delphinidae family, a family of which the name was simply produced by merging the words Monodontidae and Delphinapteridae.

Here is an article about Irrawaddy Dolphin at World Wilf Life (WWF).
