A small pod of Pantropical Dolphin (Stenella attenuata) swims in the Banda Sea in Indonesia. These dolphins can be found worldwide, generally in fairly warm waters.
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.
