A Pantropical Dolphin (Stenella attenuata) leaps out of the sea in the Indian ocean off the Wild Coast of South Africa. These Dolphins are occasional visitors to the famous Sardine Run in this area, but generally only when the water temperature is slightly higher than normal.
Pantropical spotted dolphins are very fast swimmers and enjoy leaping out of the water. They will often bow-ride, breach and lob-tail. They have a dark grey cape on the top of their body, then a lighter grey area along the middle of the body and a pale grey underside. They have light spots on their dark skin and dark spots on their light skin.
