Bottlenose Dolphins Foraging

In this video, shot and edited by WDP staff member Bethany Augliere, bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) are bottom-feeding in the Bahamas.

Watch and listen as they scan the bottom – you can hear their echolocation as they search for fish below the sand. Once they find a fish, they dig head first into the sand, sometimes up to their pectoral fins! These feeding bouts have been observed for up to 5 hours.

The Wild Dolphin Project: Spotted Dolphins in the Bahamas GoPro Hero3

This was a group of 6 spotted dolphins (Stenella frontalis) from the southern cluster, two adult males and two mom/calf pairs.

The males were courting one of the older females, while the other female was babysitting both of the spotless calves.

The video starts with Island, an older male, slowing swimming, then the two calves swimming together, and ending with Vinca and her mother Violet, doing a synchronized dive before swimming off.

Dolphins, Amberjacks, and Sharks

In this short video clip, a group of 4 Atlantic spotted dolphins (two moms with calves) chase or “target” a large amberjack fish using echolocation. They work the fish from the bottom up through the water column in synchrony. A lemon shark shows up to check out the fish (then us) and the dolphins take off.

Spotted Dolphins Foraging (GOPRO)

This is a quick video of some juvenile spotted dolphins (Stenella frontalis) foraging in the sand in the Bahamas. These dolphins feed on small razorfish and flounder in the day during the day, then go off into deep water at night to feed on squid and flying fish.

In this video clip, I was freediving down to record behavior and acoustics, when a sub-adult male checked out what I was doing!
