Belonging to the large family of marine mammals, dolphins are present in all the seas and oceans of the globe.
The word dolphin refers to a large number of cetacean species, killer whales also belong to the group of delphinids for example.
Like all other cetaceans, the dolphin has several fins:
- two pectorals fin
- a dorsal fin
- a caudal fin.
Dolphins also have a vent located on the upper part of their head.
It is through this vent that they breathe, not through their mouths.
On this page, I have shared my passion for dolphin pictures.
You will find photos of several dolphin species such as:
- Turciops Truncatus (bottlenose dolphins, like Flipper)
- the Turciops Aduncus (Indian Ocean bottlenose dolphins, a little smaller than Tursiops truncatus)
- other smaller cetaceans such as those of the Stenellae family
