Zorro is a male Hector’s dolphin that lives at Banks Peninsula, near Christchurch. Affectionately known as BBT.010 in the research catalogue, the dolphin watching operators in Akaroa call this dolphin the “Caped Crusader”. He is named for his unique pigmentation pattern that resembles a grey “cape” over his back. Also known as ‘Zorro’ who was a fictional character wearing a cape and defending innocent people in California against villains - way back in the 1800s. Because the Caped Crusader is so unique looking and frequents Akaroa Harbour, he is well known to locals and tour companies. He was first sighted in 1993.
