Peales Dolphin Description
  These dolphins have robust bodies, with a greyish black back and dorsal fin. This dark colouring, carries on down their gently sloping forehead to their face, ending abruptly at their chin. The Peale's dolphin does have a beak, but it is short and unobvious and can be lighter or darker grey depending on the animal. Above each eye, there is a pale grey/ white streak running from the head, to the tail flank. Each eye has a dark patch around it, and behind that, the sides of the dolphin fade to a greyish white colour.
