A vision, a ghost.
The Vaquita is hidden,
Never to be found.
Or is that silver fog that
Frequents the water’s surface
A lone Vaquita?
Surely it cannot be so.
For years ago we
Wiped the species from the Earth.
But now it is too late. Or is it?
One of the surest ways to tell the difference between a stranded dolphin and a porpoise is their teeth. Porpoises’ teeth are spade-shaped, while the dolphins’ are conical. In the field, the best way to identify a porpoise is that they are generally smaller and more shy than any other cetacean, with the Vaquita being the most extreme example.
