Husbandry

Delphinus delphis - Gemeiner Delfin

Gerrit:
extrem gleich aussehend ist Delphinus capensis (Küstendelphin).
Der Delphinus capensis hat eine längere, schmalere Schnauze, eine etwas flachere Stirn und kürze Brustflossen sowie Finne.

Er ist eigentlich überwiegend an den Küsten zu finden.
Der D. delphis bevorzugt offene Gewässer. Allgemein soll der D. capensis farblich blasser als der D. delphis sein.

Natürlich für kein Aquarium geeignet.
