-Notes: The bottlenose dolphin is what comes to mind for most people who picture a dolphin ("Flipper" was a bottlenose dolphin). The largest of the beaked dolphins, they are 8 to 12 feet long and are found mostly in coastal and inshore areas of tropical and temperate waters. Eighteen to 28 sharp conical teeth are contained on each side of each jaw. In addition to making sounds to communicate socially, they create clicking noises in their use of echolocation for locating prey. 2-part skull (separate cranium & jaw).
