Indus waterway dolphins are accepted to have begun in the old Tethys Sea. At the point when the ocean evaporated around 50 million years back, the dolphins had to adjust to its solitary residual living space—streams. Today, they must be found in the lower portions of the Indus River in Pakistan and in River Beas, a tributary of the Indus River in Punjab, India. In Pakistan, their numbers declined significantly after the development of a water system framework, and most dolphins are bound to a 750 mile stretch of the waterway and separated into disengaged populaces by six floods. They have adjusted to life in the sloppy stream and are practically visually impaired. They depend on echolocation to explore, convey and chase prey including prawns, catfish, and carp.




Indus stream dolphins are found in Pakistan and River Beas, a tributary of Indus River in Punjab, India. The dolphin is the state amphibian creature of Punjab and WWF-India is progressing in the direction of its protection. Waterway Beas is the main natural surroundings of Indus River Dolphin in India.
