In 1848, American naturalist Titian Peale discovered a new dolphin species and gave it his name. The species has prominent light and dark markings and a striking dark dorsal fin.

The lively animals like to join together in groups of up to one hundred. Together, they then go hunting for squid and shrimp or have fun surfing in the wake of ships. Like other species of dolphin, they also show no fear of humans.

Peale’s dolphins are distributed along the coastal waters of southern South America. Even 170 years after their discovery, not much is known about them or their natural predators, but for dolphins in general, environmental pollution and fishing pose an existential threat.
