"I was pleasantly surprised to see two dolphins swimming free in the Baltic Sea near the coasts of Smiltynė. Over the 35 years I've worked at the Sea Museum, this is the first time I have seen the spectacular view," said Saulius Karalius, senior ichthyologist at the Lithuanian Sea Museum.

He confirmed that the dolphins were Atlantic bottlenose dolphins.

"The Baltic Sea is indeed unsuitable for them to live and breed. It has a low salt level, furthermore, there would be problems with food. I am certain they came from the North Sea via the Denmark Strait," Karalius added.
