Indo-Pacific Bottlenose Dolphin, Tursiops aduncus
2013-09-19 11:24:25

The Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops aduncus) is one of three recognized species of bottlenose dolphin that can be found in the waters near southern Australia, South China, and India. Its range also includes the Red Sea and the eastern coastal areas of Africa. All bottlenose dolphins were classified as one species, the common bottlenose dolphin or T. truncates, until 1998 when the Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphin was found to be distinct. This species is distinct from other bottlenose...

The Burrunan dolphin (Tursiops australis) is one of three recognized species of bottlenose dolphin. It can be found in two areas of Victoria, Australia. One population can be found in the Gippsland Lakes, where about 50 reside, and one in Port Phillip, where about 100 individuals reside. Haplotypes of the Burrunan dolphin have been discovered in an area extending from the Spencer Gulf waters west to St. Francis Island. Because of its low numbers, it is thought to deserve protection from the...
