Saddleback Dolphins By: Arianna, Chelsie and Christian
The saddleback dolphin is a slender brownish-black dolphin with a white belly. It has dark stripes from the jaw to the flipper. The body length is 9 feet long.
The saddleback dolphin lives in the Atlantic Ocean and Pacific Ocean from southern Canada to northern South America.
This animal’s best defense is in number. They travel in groups and will gang up on predators. It will also ram into its enemies.
Sometimes saddleback dolphins may lose their way and end up in the rivers that feed into the ocean. • This animal also has many other names. For example: hourglass dolphin, common dolphin and white-bellied porpoise.
