as always - fighting for a trainer's attention, want to be petted, and fed - maybe.
same place - Sochi, "Utrish dolphinarium"
Beluga whale (Delphinapterus leucas) - not a dolphin(!): together with narwal a part of a small Monodontidae family.
Bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus)- very well known to people species, since they are the mostly often met in oceanaria dolphins .

Hi Olga,

This is a nice and very funny shot. Last September I saw Beluga Whales in real life for the first time when I was in Vancouver. I really like those animals with their fat heads. :) Dolphins are always cute. Well done & TFS!
