By Species (Marine): Commersons Dolphin
(Cephalorhynchus commersonii) These dolphins have a distinctive black and white coloring, and are among the smallest dolphins, maturing at 5 ft and 180 lb. They can reach speeds of 35mph, which makes them the fastest marine mammal, and the only one that can outrun a killer whale in a straight line. They appear to have a shorter attention span than other dolphins, which makes training more difficult, but also makes them funner to watch.
By Species (Marine): Dolphin
Dolphin is a generic term that can describe one of about 40 species in the family Delphinidae. It also can technically apply to the Killer Whale (Orca) but usually is not.
