The Most Energetic Dolphins

Similar to its cousin, the bottlenose dolphin, striped dolphins are very abundant with a healthy wild population and are one of the most widely distributed dolphins in the world. In fact, they can be found in every ocean across the globe, mostly in warm temperate and tropical waters, and is the most abundant dolphin species in the Mediterranean Sea. The Adriatic Sea is home to a large population of this beautifully active animals with over 20,000 individuals. Because this species is so abundant, it has been extensively studied and much is known about it. The unique coloration is similar to that of the common dolphin and since they are often found in large groups alongside the one another, identification of the two can be easily mixed up.
