canada: Be sur­rounded by Pa­cific white­sided dol­phins

World of Animals - - Ex­plore The Earth -

Known to come in­shore dur­ing win­ter, these dol­phins con­gre­gate in groups of thou­sands. They are com­mon through­out the north­ern half of the Pa­cific Ocean, all the way from the western coast of the US to the East China Sea.

The an­i­mals hunt in teams of up to 20 and co-or­di­nate to dec­i­mate large schools of fish like an­chovies and mack­erel. This or­gan­i­sa­tion helps the dol­phins bond closely, and in­jured mem­bers of the pod are su­per­vised by healthy dol­phins around the clock.
