Hector’s Dolphin
Hector’s dolphins are the smallest and rarest marine dolphins in the world. There is a subspecies of Hector’s dolphin known as Maui’s dolphin that is critically endangered and estimated to have a population of only 55. They are found only in the shallow coastal waters along western shores of New Zealand’s North Island
Bycatch—becoming tangled in recreational and commercial gill and trawl nets—is the biggest threat they face.  Gillnets, for example, are made of a fine mesh that dolphins are unable to detect underwater and they accidentally swim into them and become caught. Other threats include being struck by boats, pollution in their habitat, coastal development and seabed mining.

"With its tubular, bulbous nose, it may look like a character from a Dr. Seuss book or the bar scene in Star Wars. But don’t be fooled by its droll appearance: The saiga antelope is one of the animal world’s great survivors.”

This was from the National Geographic website. I found it extremely funny that NatGeo named the image file “strange nosed antelope.”
