Curiosity about bottlenose (tursiopi)

The dolphins community which lives in the water nearby Golfo Aranci belongs to the gender of bottlenose. Dolphins are marin mammals so they live under water all their life and they do daily activities as eat, sleep and play. Underwater they mate, they give birth and breastfeed their babies continuing to breathe putting out of the water their “nose”.

Some numbers:

  • The dolphins community in Golfo Aranci is numerous, by the way the habits of these mammal it’s to live in small group composed by 2 or 3 until 10 members. In most of case they are female.Male members prefer to live alone and to join the group just in some period…
  • They can swim at 30 km/h.
  • Dolphins have lungs like us, marine mammals can stay under water from few minutes till few hours (like sperm whales);
  • Gestation is around 12 months, babies born underwater and they are feed till 18 months, they live nearby their moms till 4 years;
  • Are dolphins dangerous? They’re usually peaceful and playful but the females, like every mammals mum, care a lot about their puppies so if they hear presence of a danger, they could became aggressive, like every mother do!
  • Dolphins in some case live more than 50 years, howeve during their life they meet many dangers and infant mortality rate is quite high Main threats are: sea fishing net, intensive fishing, vhemical and noise pollution, plastic, collision with boat’s propellers…

It is essential to maintain a responsabile conduct at every stage of dolphin watching for the protection and safety species.
