Bottlenose Dolphins

Tursiops truncatus

Description:

Friendly Common Bottlenose Dolphin - Tursiops truncatus of Socorro Island are super friendly. They will sneaks up behind you, swims besides you or hover just below you inviting you to 'sink' deeper with them! And if they likes you, you can even tickle their chin or kiss them! lol

Notes:

Pic#1 Up close & personal Pic#2 This particular Dolphin has scratched markings on its back (easy to identify) is probably the Pod Leader as it will keep coming up close to divers to check them out before the other Dolphins will come close.
