Hourglass Dolphin Description
  Not much about is actually known about this dolphin because it lives in the cold waters of the southern hemisphere in the Antarctic and Sub-Antarctic seas. But it is easy to identify with its striking white hourglass pattern, and because it is the only dolphin with a tall dorsal fin, in those waters all year round.
