Yes, thank you for posting! I saw this story recently and thought about posting it here, but didn't get around to it. It's very interesting, not only that the dolphin has scoliosis, but that the whales seem to have adopted it. I'm fascinated by animals.

This is off topic, but have you seen the video of the dolphin that asked a diver for help with a hook and fishing line that was caught on his body? Pretty amazing:
