About this Individual

Esther was one of the first dolphins at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo. At the age of 5 to 6 years old, she was purchased from Marine Animal Productions Inc., via Marine Life Oceanarium, Gulfport.

Esther was likely a year round resident at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo but little is known about her. Esther was found to be in early pregnancy when she died in 1984.

Esther was suffering from stress with myopathy leading to myoglobin urea nephrotoxicity, liver cirrhosis, probably longstanding haemosiderosis.
