Pacific Humpback Dolphin Description
  Pacific humpback dolphins can vary in color from yellow to pink to almost white to medium grey; their bellies are usually the lightest areas.
Like bottlenose dolphins, they have a long, slender beaks which may get lighter as they get older. They also have a broad-based dorsal fin that slopes backwards. In some individuals the base can be more than one third of their body length.
Those found in the west have a fatty hump which the dorsal fin sits on, those in the east don't have a hump and they can sometimes get confused with bottlenose dolphins.
