I love these dolphins. Risso's Dolphins look like no others, with their rounded heads and scarred bodies. Ron LeValley got these fantastic photos of them.
They usually are about ten feet long, though they can get as big as fourteen feet long.
Risso's Dolphins feed on Squid and the scars on their bodies are believed to be from their encounters with their prey.
Many thanks to Ron for allowing me to share his photos with you here. To see much more of Ron's photography, here is his website: http://www.levalleyphoto.com/home/
