Ironically, a distinctive yellow-beige streak on the side of a dolphin is a sure sign that you’ve spotted a cetacean nicknamed “white sides.” The White-Sided Dolphin (Lagenorhynchus acutus) can be differentiated from close dolphin relatives like the Peale’s and Dusky dolphins by the yellow-beige patch on the side of the dolphin.
