Yangtze Finless Porpoise Fujiu Gave Birth to Baby "F9C22"



Yangtze finless porpoise Fujiu gave birth to a baby Yangtze finless porpoise numbered "F9C22" in Wuhan, China.

The F9C22 was born on June 27 at the Institute of Hydrobiology (IHB) of Chinese Academy of Sciences.

In addition to the newly born F9C22, there are six other Yangtze finless porpoises in captivity, three of which were bred through artificial breeding.

The Yangtze finless porpoise is the only freshwater subspecies of the finless porpoise family. The species, only found in parts of the middle and lower reaches of the river, has lived here for 25 million years.
