Hector's dolphin: One of the smallest and also rarest dolphin species in the world. The 7000-8000 remaining animals only live in the waters surrounding the South Island of NZ. They can have a total length of 1.2-1.6 meters, weigh 40-60 kg and can be up to 20 years old. Special thanks to @blackcatcruises! They actually offer the opportunity to see Hector's dolphins as close as you can see them on this picture!
