animal: Hawaiian Spinner Dolphin
location: Hawaii
equipment: Canon 7D w/ 15mm fisheye and SPL water housing

Yeah, some of them have some pretty gnarly battle scars.

That is so sad. Is it from boats or from battle with other sea life?

The ocean is a wild place and dolphins encounter all kinds of dangerous things. I've seen many of them with these bites from a "cookie cutter shark", they are the size of a big cookie.
