The Grecian Dolphin was a strange dolphin-like animal sighted twice off the coast of Greece by tourists. The original photo was taken by a Scottish tourist named Harvey Robertson while on a boat cruise off the coast of Parga.
The creature resembles a dolphin with an elongated horse-like face. It possesses small black eyes, smooth gray skin, and large nostrils.
There are several explanations as to what the creature could be. Theories include:
- An undiscovered species (a Cryptid)
- A mutant dolphin
- Zoologist Dr. Darren Naish of the National Oceanography Centre at the University of Southampton and host of the Tetrapod Zoology podcast believes that a skin sample biopsy of the “creature” would reveal high concentrations of Polyvinyl Chloride.
