He might not be small – his species of Moray Firth Bottlenose Dolphin can grow up to 4 meters in length – and he’s not green, but Yoda the dolphin is every bit as brave as the Jedi Master. After missing for 3 years it was learned that he had swan a huge distance for such a young dolphin from Scotland to Denmark, just like his GFFA namesake journeyed from Coruscant to Dagobah.

Yoda the bottlenose dolphin is part of a family pod of dolphins that live in the Moray Firth and disappeared in 2017. But now conservationists in Denmark have spotted the sea-explorer in their waters. It is common for dolphins to swim to new places, but Scottish researchers were concerned that they had not seen Yoda at all.

Yoda is 13 years old, which is quite young for a dolphin to have travelled such a distance. He may not be a small green alien, but Yoda shares more in common with his movie namesake than you think! His mum is called Chewbacca, his sister is Kenobi and has a brother called Skywalker!
