Hi, I'm Petra Cunningham-Smith. I'm one of the dolphin trainers here at Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium, in Sarasota, Florida. Today, we're going to talk about the rough-toothed dolphin. Rough-toothed dolphins are medium-sized cetaceans that live in warm, temperate waters throughout the world. They are named rough-toothed dolphins because they have little ridges on their teeth, and these ridges help them catch and hold their prey. Rough-toothed dolphins are considered very intelligent, and they're very social animals that move in large social groups. The rough-toothed dolphin is known for being a very social animal, living in very cohesive groups. They are deep-water animals, so you wouldn't be able to see them easily from the shoreline. And that's a little bit about rough-toothed dolphins, from Mote Marine Laboratory, in Sarasota, Florida.
