Bottlenose dolphins are well known as the
intelligent and charismatic stars of many aquarium shows.
In the wild, these sleek swimmers can reach
speeds of over 18 miles (30 kilometers) an hour. They surface often to
breathe, doing so two or three times a minute. Bottlenose dolphins
travel in social groups and communicate with each other by a complex
system of squeaks and whistles. Schools have been known to come to the
aid of an injured dolphin and help it to the surface.
Bottlenose dolphins track their prey through
the expert use of echolocation. They can make up to 1,000 clicking
noises per second. These sounds travel underwater until they encounter
objects, then bounce back to their dolphin senders, revealing the
location, size, and shape of their target.
Bottlenose dolphins are common in the waters
around Cabo, especially during the tuna season. However, dolphins are
threatened by commercial fishing for tuna, and can become mortally
entangled in nets and other fishing equipment.
