Rough-Toothed Dolphin

Rough-Toothed Dolphin

(Steno bredanensis)

Its name comes from the characteristic thin lines on its teeth, although the most distinctive feature that enables its identification at sea is an elongated head, with a conical beak. Its colour is darker than bottlenose dolphins and it has lighter patches. It forms large pods which are distributed into smaller groups of between 6 and 10 individuals.
