Common Bottlenose Dolphin
These are fairly large dolphins and are commonly seen jumping the bow waves of ships at sea. They are the larger offshore relative of the Indo-Pacific Bottlenose Dolphin and can be told apart by size and the smaller beak of the Common. As with other dolphins, their diet consists primarily of fish and cephalopods.
