What is a Vaquita?
Vaquitas have a very unique way of adaptation, like their physical adaptations. Vaquita fins are more taller and larger than other porpoises. Also, they have an upright dorsal fin that is relativetly large when compared to other porpoises species. Vaquitas behavioral adaptations are different too. Vaquitas are frighten of boats, and they are never of surface. Vaquitas are very shy and secretive creatures. For this reason, they are most of the time in groups.

The main threats to Vaquitas are accidental gill nets. Fishermen set nets for fish and and shrimp. Vaquitas are usually not their targets but they mostly get caught in the nets. The vaquita is also threatened by the dwindling flow of fresh water from the Colorado River into the gulf. Vaquitas are starting to get extinct.
