Bottlenose Dolphin

Bottlenose Dolphin

Bottle Nose Dolphin, Tursiops Truncatus.
Bottlenose Dolphins are the most common and well-known type of dolphin. Bottlenose dolphins are found inhabiting warm seas worldwide.
Bottlenose dolphins are grey in colour and grow between 2 and 4 meters long. These dolphins typically stay in groups from 15 to 2,000 in number.
Dolphins are thought to be one of the more intelligent animals of the mammal world, along with bigger primates and humans. Dolphins are thought to communicate to other dolphins through a series of clicking sounds.
Bottlenose dolphins generally have a good relationship with humans and due to their intelligence, bottlenose dolphins have been trained by military forces for tasks such as locating sea mines or detecting and marking enemy divers. In some areas the bottlenose dolphins have been known to help the local fishermen by driving fish towards the fishermen and then eating the fish that escape the nets. Some interactions with humans however are harmful to the dolphins as people hunt bottlenose dolphins for food, and dolphins are often killed by accident when there is mass tuna fishing.
Bottlenose dolphins are generally known to have a calm and playful temperament, particularly around humans.
Hawaii is a wonderful destination... This Bottle-nose provided several minutes of viewing pleasure.
