Notes:
Spotte, Stephen, Charles W. Radcliffe and Lawrence Dunn (1979). "Notes on Commerson's dolphin (Cephalorhynchus commersonii) in captivity." Cetology 35: 1-9. ABSTRACT - Four Commerson's dolphins (Cephalorhynchus commersonii) were seized by government agents in New York City for illegal entry into the United States. One female was dead on arrival. The other dolphins were taken to Mystic Marinelife Aquarium in Mystic, Connecticut, where a second female died shortly after arrival. A third female is still alive (September, 1979). It arrived with a marked lateral and ventral deviation of the spine, which did not respond to a single early treatment with diazepam. The condition has worsened with time. Radiographs revealed no bony changes. On the third day after arrival in Mystic, the two surviving dolphins (the other was a male) were treated for lungworms (Skrjabinalius sp.) with levamisole hydrochloride (9 mg per kg of body mass injected subcutaneously). The treatment apparently was successful, as necropsy of the male, which died eight days later, showed no lungworms but evidence of an immediate prior infestation. The male was given levamisole hydrochloride alone and reacted violently, whereas the female received diazepam at the same time (5 mg I. M.) for the spinal deviation and demonstrated no unusual response. Necropsy of the three dead specmens howed verminous pneumonia, gastroenteritis, gastric ulcers, and pancreatic fibrosis. No corpora lutea or corpora albicantia were found on the ovaries of the dead females and they were judged to be immature. Sperm in the testes of the male indicated that it was mature. Based on a daily average food consumption of 3.6 kg da-1 ,energy requirements for an animal weighing 35 kg are 3300 kcal da-1 (X = 94 kcal per kg of body mass per day).
