Sundance On The Prowl…

Hi Everyone,

Sundance has been about quite a lot recently, nearly always in the company of Zephyr and Breeze. I came across him and Mischief together out at sea too – the two big, powerful males and buddies at the periphery of a group that had a lot of girls and youngsters in it. Big males like Sundance often prowl about, looking after territory and keeping up friendships, and being a very inquisitive species anyway – often just checking something, or someone out.

You can see in the photo above his big dorsal fin, that has lots of scrapes, scratches and nicks on it – testament to a busy life as a top dolphin.

Best Wishes,

Charlie.
