Twice a day, the dolphins move up and down the coastline. They passed by while I was walking the beach this afternoon, and I captured this with my cell phone. I wish I could have captured more, but they don’t come too far out of the water as they travel back and forth. Graceful? For sure. 🙂
Beaufort County, SC: “The Bottlenose Dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) is the most common marine mammal along the South Carolina coast. These are the dolphins that we see playing and feeding just off our island beaches. They are solid gray on top, with lighter sides and belly, and reach an adult length of between six and twelve feet.”
In 2009, South Carolina designated the Bottlenose Dolphin as their official state marine mammal.
