Pictures from photo gallery: "Dolphin Pictures"

Of all the Bottlenose Dolphins at the L'Oceanografic at the City of Arts and Science in Valencia, Spain, this particular dolphin decided to come close and let us take a profile picture. Here you can see the long upper and lower jaws on the Bottlenose Dolphin, making up the rostrum, and creating what appears as a smile on the dolphin's face.

As you can see in this profile picture, his dark eye is located at the end of his smile, with his pectoral flippers located on its underside, moving back and forth to aid in his steering. Along the backside of the Bottlenose Dolphin, a dorsal fin curving towards his tail fluke is located, which may act as a keel to stabilize the dolphin as he swims.
