Striped Dolphin

(Stenella coeruleoalba)

The striped dolphin is a very active and social creature, and marked so clearly that they can be identified even in a poor picture like this. Perhaps a third of a large group of these fast-swimming dolphins may be at the surface at any one time, making them very conspicuous and dramatic when they travel.
