Dolphin skin growth

This bottlenose dolphin has a peculiar skin growth on his dorsum. It was there last year as well, and it hasn't grown bigger. This individual is one of about 400 in our photo-identification catalogue for the waters off Veneto, Italy (see: http://www.dolphinbiology.org/dolphinsofveneto.htm).
