How are humans impacting your marine mammal?
How will the extinction of your marine mammal affect the ocean and/ or our planet?
Deep offshore waters (more than 1000 m deep) are preferred, but where the water is deep, Striped Dolphins may sometimes be found close to the coast. Also found in the Atlantic and Pacific ocean.
The main diet of striped dolphins consists of fish, squid, krill, cephalopods, crustaceans and octopus.
Gestation lasts approximately 12 months for the female Striped Dolphin and there is a 3 or 4 year gap between calving. Life span of the Striped Dolphin is about 55 - 60 years.
Striped Dolphins use echolocation, a way of sensing in which they emit high-pitched clicks and sense them as they bounce back off objects (like prey).
Some sharks (including tiger sharks, dusky sharks and bull sharks) and orcas will prey upon dolphins. Dolphins are also often trapped in fishing nets.
Japan has hunted Striped Dolphin in the western Pacific since at least the 1940s. During the 'Striped Dolphin drive' heyday at least 8,000 - 9,000 species were killed each year and in one exceptional year 21,000 individuals were killed.
Stenella coeruleoalba is the scientific name and has a white belly and dark grey back, with light gray stipes
The average dolphin species can stay underwater for as long as eight to 10 minutes; some can remain submerged while holding their breath for 15 minutes.
their has been sighting of Lacaziosis- like disease which is most common in adult males, to have appear on the dorsal fin, flippers, and or tail flukes.
well, more people will stop going to sea world on vacations. i mean face it this animal has no benefiting qualities. its the same as the other animals that eats to keep the prey population under control. if they all die the ocean wouldn't turn to chaos.
