Two dolphins have been seen in the Venice Canals of Italy, a rare sight attributed to the stoppage of tourist boat and gondola operation that made the waters clear and attracted some wildlife.
Some locals caught the dolphins on video and camera and posted it on Twitter. Swans, birds, fishes and wild boars were also photographed in the water and on land and shared online.
A netizen described the rare visitors as a side-effect of the pandemic or coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak in Italy that scared tourists away from the famous Canals.
More than 100,000 tourists crowd Venice and its famous canals daily before the outbreak reduced the number to almost nil.
