The Long-Beaked Common Dolphin has more teeth than any other dolphin, with up to 67 pairs of teeth lining the jaw.
Long-beaked common dolphins are usually found in large social groups averaging from 100-500 animals, but have been occasionally seen in larger herds of thousands of individuals. These large schools are thought to consist of smaller sub-groups of 10-30 animals that are possibly related or separated by age and/or sex. These gregarious, energetic dolphins are commonly seen swimming rapidly, “breaching”,“porpoising”, and frequently engaging in other surface active behavior. They will often approach ships to“bow ride” for long periods of time.
