THanks for the update, Mark. It might pay to update the "dolphin feeding on freshwater eel" observation to "dolphin tossing freshwater eel" as the observer has only seen complete eels being tossed in this way (on multiple occasions) with no evidence that the eel(s) was or were eaten.

Thank you @danimations. That's a valid point. I won't update the above table because it takes a lttle while, but have updated the master document. :)

Good stuff, and thanks for attributing Jenni Wrysta as the actual photographer/observer too... I reported it on her behalf.
