2009 Digital Calendar photo description 

"Dolphin Duo"

Wild Bottlenose Dolphins have become habituated to humans in their environment.

Dolphins swim right up to snorkellers with intense interest and even looks of curiosity

and a faint smile at how un-coordinated and helpless humans are in water.

As they rise to the surface they blow bubbles as signatures or splash around

 on the surface as a form of communication


Inshore Bottlenose Dolphin - Tursiops truncates


Inshore Bottlenose Dolphins are small cetaceans that have a long, beaklike snout,

a falcate (sickle-shaped) dorsal fin, and sharp teeth. They are Odontoceti (toothed whales)

and have one blowhole. They live in small groups called pods and grow to be at most

3.7 m long, sometimes weighing more than 635 kg. Dolphins can dive down to more

than 300 m and can jump up to 6 m out of the water.
