I have added this to the Marine Mammal mission and taken it out of the Humpback whale mission. Dolphins are part of the toothed whale family whereas humpbacks are baleen whales. Dolphins eat fish and larger prey while humpbacks are filter feeders eat small fish but mostly filtering plankton.
Thanks!!! I forgot !!
Awesome find, Marlyn! I have suggested an ID for you, as well as changed the category from Fish to Mammals. Dolphins are mammals because they breathe air through blowholes, while fish use gills to get oxygen from the water. Nice spottings, great job! Hope to see more!
