Emergency services have saved two pygmy killer whales that became distressed off the shore of Florida.
The two mammals, who are part of the oceanic dolphin family, were found stranded in the shallow waters of Sand Key in Clearwater.
Clearwater Fire & Rescue officials and staff from the Clearwater Marine Aquarium cooperated in the rescue efforts.
The two pygmy killer whales were later taken to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium.
The rescue came just days after an orca was rescued off the Argentinian coast.
Throngs of people joined efforts to rescue the 4,000 kilogram animal and reintroduce it to the sea.
