Irrawaddy dolphin found dead on Koh Rong Samloem

Posting this because I never knew the Irrawaddy dolphins could live in the ocean. They are found in estuaries, but I think it is unusual to find one so far out to sea ? Maybe it got lost ?

This dolphin was found dead yesterday, off Lazy Beach I think. The locals are going to do a Buddhist ceremony for it. RIP I guess.
