[LRS Animals In Art] Jeroen Verhoeff, Long Finned Pilot Whales Meet Dolphin


The long-finned pilot whale (Globicephala melas) is a large species of oceanic dolphin. It shares the genus Globicephala with the short-finned pilot whale (Globicephala macrorhynchus). Long-finned pilot whales are known as such because of their unusually long pectoral fins.
