The common bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) is a charismatic and beloved sight in our Beaufort waterways. Intelligent and social – they travel, feed, play and rest in groups and are active throughout the day and night. Local residents and visitors alike are fortunate to have the opportunity to frequently observe these beautiful creatures in their natural habitat.  Photo courtesy Todd Pusser

INFO SHEET - Adaptations of marine organisms - Marine organisms have adapted to the great diversity of habitats and distinctive environmental conditions in the marine environment. Adaptations are many and varied but they are generally grouped into 3 main categories: structural, physiological and behavioural.

Bottle nose Dolphin  Bottlenose dolphins are generalists and feed on a variety of prey items�"endemic"�to their habitat, foraging individually and cooperatively. Like other dolphins, bottlenose dolphins use high frequency echolocation to locate and pelagic squid and fish. Bottlenose dolphins employ multiple feeding of the water.
