As many of you may have already heard, The Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada is infamous for its dolphin "death pool," where dolphins are subjected to scorching summer temperatures, little shade, obvious aggression, and the pox virus.
However, SeaWorld Orlando's bottlenose dolphins are also showing signs of the same dolphin pox virus. It is very possible that The Mirage's dolphins became infected after "SeaWorld Orlando shipped Beetle and Cosmo over on a breeding loan in March 2010."
According to this study, "stress, environmental conditions and general health appear to play a major role in the clinical manifestation of dolphin pox."
All of these photos were taken at SeaWorld and are unedited, but are cropped to focus on areas affected by the virus. Also take note of the many rake marks caused by other dolphins.
