Hi Elena! You've labelled this as Phocoena phocoena, but that is the harbour porpoise. This guy here is a bottlenosed dolphin, so the correct Latin name is Tursiops truncatus. Do you think you could change that for us please? Also, could you let us know if this is a captive animal or not - we'd like it if you could put in the description if it's not a wild animal :) Thank you!
