Learn about Striped Dolphin (Stenella coeruleoalba)

Max length: 2.7 m

Max weight: 150 kg

Similar in appearance to spinners, the most distinguishing feature is a pair of black stripes – from eye to pectoral fin, and from eye to tail.  A shorter, darker snout than spinners, they also have a V-shaped contrast coloration along the sides.  Dorsal fin is curved without scars or chipping.  Traveling in large groups of several hundred to several thousand, they are rarely seen near shore, but rather prefer deep offshore waters.  


Feeding primarily on squid . . .
