The Dusky Dolphin

The Dusky Dolphin is a tiny species of dolphin that is discovered populating the cooler waters along continental slopes throughout the southern hemisphere. This unique looking cetacean is very much related to other big oceanic animals together with other dolphins, whales and porpoises but despite their fish-like look Dusky Dolphins are proper mammals that equally breathe air in and out of their lungs and also suckle their little on milk manufactured by the mother’s mammary glands.

Dusky Dolphins are extensive throughout the southern hemisphere with three species being identified that have been clustered by their geographical range, with one establish off the coast of South America, one close to South Africa and in the Indian Ocean and an extra populates deeper waters near to New Zealand. Unhappily however, despite being nearby common in firm areas Dusky Dolphin inhabitants have refused throughout much of their usual range mainly due to risks caused by increasing levels of human movement.
