Dolphinaris Arizona announced that one of its bottlenose dolphins died Tuesday morning at its facility in Scottsdale.
Alia, a 10-year-old bottlenose dolphin, had "displayed some unusual behaviors in the last few days," according to a statement on the Dolphinaris Arizona website.
An exact cause of death has not been determined, the statement said.
Alia was the second dolphin to die at the aquatic facility in less than a year.
Bodie, a 7-year-old bottle bottlenose dolphin, died Sept. 23. The dolphin had a rare muscle disease and had been under constant veterinary care.
