The Acrobatic Dolphin


They jump, they twist, they flip, they spin.


Small and agile, these dolphins are true acrobats of the ocean. (Watch the video below to see one spin in slow motion)


What do you  think they're called?  Yep, Spinner dolphins! 


How can you identify them?


1st IK*: Very long thin dark beak


2nd IK: Gray with creamy undersides


3rd IK: Long pectoral (underside) fins


And they spin! Check it out below:




 *Identification Key, or IKs, are characteristics used to identify an animal. (More about identification keys here.)
