Common Dolphin (Delphinus delphis)
This species of dolphin is really easy to recognize because of its beautiful coloration; they are marked with a distinct yellow and grey pattern along their sides. In Tenerife, they are seen in big groups between 20-50 animals. They can be very acrobatic and friendly with the boats.
When feeding, they work together as a team to herd fish into tight balls. They are often seen in association with diving Cory’ shearwater feeding on the same fish.
