The rough-toothed dolphin, Steno bredanensis, is unique among Delphinidae as the gradual slope of the front portion of its skull forms a long, narrow beak with no separation between the melon and the snout. The species is distributed in the tropical and subtropical waters of the Pacific, Atlantic, and Indian Oceans.

The rough-toothed dolphin (Steno bredanensis) is a species of dolphin that can be found in deep warm and tropical waters around the world. Steno bredanensis was first described by Georges Cuvier in 1823. The genus name Steno, of which this species is the only member, comes from the Greek for 'narrow', referring to the animal's beak — which is a diagnostic characteristic of the species. The specific name honours van Breda, who studied Cuvier's writings.
