There are actually two kinds of bottlenose dolphin (tusiops truncatus). One form is found near the coast in warmer water, the other form lives off shore in deeper and colder water. The off shore type is usually larger and has a slighly shorter beak. The one that is mostly seen and known (from shows and media) is the smaller coastal type. I have separated them here.
