I have never seen a marine mammal with such a strange "ulcer". First it made me think of "pocks" like we know them from the humpback whales and the grey whales. However, from the photos we understand that it is something more or less soft, like a tumor. I have sent the photos to Kimberly Grobholz who is the owner of a practice in Munich for natural therapy of animals. She assumes that this phenomenon is due to extreme environment pollution. She knows this problem from the marine fauna in general.
