Bottle nose Dolphin  Bottlenose dolphins are generalists and feed on a variety of prey items�"endemic"�to their habitat, foraging individually and cooperatively. Like other dolphins, bottlenose dolphins use high frequency echolocation to locate and pelagic squid and fish. Bottlenose dolphins employ multiple feeding of the water.

This species is often of prey items "endemic" to their habitat, foraging individually and cooperatively. Like other dolphins, bottlenose dolphins use high frequency echolocation to locate and capture prey. Coastal animals prey on "benthic" invertebrates and fish, and offshore animals feed on pelagic squid and fish. Bottlenose dolphins employ multiple feeding strategies, including "fish whacking," where they strike a fish with their flukes and knock it out of the water.

INFO SHEET - Adaptations of marine organisms - Marine organisms have adapted to the great diversity of habitats and distinctive environmental conditions in the marine environment. Adaptations are many and varied but they are generally grouped into 3 main categories: structural, physiological and behavioural.
