Short-finned pilot whale or Globicephala macrorhynchus

  • Short-finned pilot whale

Pilot whales love tropical and temperate waters like Madeira’s sea! Usually, their body is dark-grey to black with a spot behind the dorsal fin and can be up to 5 to 6 meters long. They are very sweet and sociable animals! They tend to travel in groups and, sometimes, do so alongside bottlenose dolphins!
