A spectacled porpoise - a rare porpoise species in Brazil was found dead in the Casino Beach in Rio Grande do Sul. It weighed approximately 110 kilograms and was about two meters long. It was taken to the Oceanographic Museum University of Rio Grande, where tests should indicate the cause of death.

The presence of the aquatic mammal on the beach caught the attention of swimmers, mainly due to its size, which was much larger than those that usually appear on the Rio Grande do Sul coast.
