Indus River dolphin - Ecology & Habitat
At ease in turbid waters
Calves may wean by the time they reach 1 year of age. Maturity is estimated at about 10 years, and life expectancy is probably at least 28 years (similar to the Ganges River dolphin, Platanista gangetica).
The gestation period runs from 10 to 11 months, with births occurring between April and May. The birth interval is 2 years.
The Indus river dolphin eats crustaceans such as prawns, as well as fish including gobies, catfish and carp.
