@Roberta,
Yeah, I loved them babies, too. More than one offspring in a season is uncommon.

Tursiops truncatus--the common bottlenose dolphin, usually found near the shore, or in relatively shallow continental waters

Stenos bredanensis--the Rough Toothed Dolphin, a pelagic, which is to say, deep sea dolphin

Orcinus orca--usually just called Orca, is also called the Killer Whale, although it is not a whale, but a dolphin. The biggest damned dolphin you'll ever meet, but a dolphin. It is also pelagic, and pods specialize in particular types of fish, or seals, or even other dolphins.

@Setanta,
Set, Thanks for the wonderful aquatic mammal pics. Re orcas, I'm remembering a time not all that long ago when an orca took on a great white shark off the coast of California. It killed the shark, ate the liver, and swam away. Go figure.

I would suspect that they don't entertain a very high opinion of sharks.

Here's a vid of a humpback wrapped up in a net, and his reaction to being freed:

@Setanta,
I saw this on TV. (I watch a lot of animal shows.) The reaction was amazing and moving.

Crows are the most amazing people on the planet.

Edit - The follow up video shows geese doing the same thing for a hedgehog.

@edgarblythe,
I agree, edgar. Crows never cease to amaze me.
