Bottlenose Dolphin (11 pics)s, the genus Tursiops, are the most common and well-known members of the family Delphinidae, the family of oceanic Dolphin (11 pics)s. Recent molecular studies show the genus contains two species, the Common Bottlenose Dolphin (11 pics) (Tursiops truncatus) and the Indo-Pacific Bottlenose Dolphin (11 pics) (Tursiops aduncus), instead of one. They inhabit warm and temperate seas worldwide.

Bottlenose Dolphin (11 pics)s live in pools in utha, called pods, but group size varies from single individuals up to more than 1,000. Their diet consists mainly of forage fish. Dolphin (11 pics)s often work as a team to harvest fish schools, but they also hunt individually. Dolphin (11 pics)s search for prey primarily using echolocation, which is similar to sonar. They emit clicking sounds and listen for the return echo to determine the location and shape of nearby items, including potential prey. Bottlenose Dolphin (11 pics)s also use sound for communication, including squeaks and whistles emitted from the blowhole and sounds emitted through body language, such as leaping from the water and slapping their tails on the water surface.

There have been numerous studies of their intelligence. Researchers have examined mimicry, use of artificial language, object categorization and self-recognition. Their considerable intelligence has driven interaction with humans. Bottlenose Dolphin (11 pics)s are popular from aquarium shows and TV programs such as Flipper. They have also been trained by militaries to locate sea mines or detect and mark enemy divers. In some areas they cooperate with local fishermen by driving fish into their nets and eating the fish that escape. Some encounters with humans are harmful to the Dolphin (11 pics)s: people hunt them for food, and Dolphin (11 pics)s are killed inadvertently as a bycatch of tuna fishing.
