Indus River Dolphin
Indus River Dolphin (Platanista gangetica minor) are subspecies of river dolphins. The Indus River Dolphin is only found in the Indus River in Pakistan. They are very similar to the Ganges River Dolphin which is mainly found in the Ganges and Brahmaputra Rivers in the Republic of India, Bangladesh and Nepal.
It is a living fossil that has not shared a common ancestor with any other living creature for around 25 million years.
These animals are currently endangered species, mainly because of water pollution.
