09.11.2016 – Risso’s dolphins

09.11.2016 – Risso’s dolphins

A special day with the rare Risso’s dolphins. The animals have beautiful crescent-shaped dorsal fins. Many animals were covered with scars. When dolphins play, wrestle or fight, they often cause white scars with their teeth. But also squids, the main prey of Risso’s dolphins, add scars. Beautiful to see the complicated patterns on the dolphin’s bodies!

P.S. Our beloved NIKON that has been taking all the amazing photos during the past years is taking a “rest”, we promise trying to fix her as soon as possible.
