[National Geographic Wallpaper] Dusky Dolphin (남방낫돌고래)

Kaikoura Canyon, New Zealand
Maria Stenzel

"Gliding through luminous seas, a dusky dolphin patrols the top layer of New Zealand's teeming Kaikoura Canyon."

???From "Deep Mysteries of Kaikoura Canyon," June 1998, National Geographic magazine

The dusky dolphin (Lagenorhynchus obscurus) is a dolphin found in coastal waters in the Southern Hemisphere. Its specific epithet is Latin for "dark" or "dim". It is very closely genetically related to the Pacific white-sided dolphin, but current scientific consensus holds they are distinct species.
