Four blue whales (including calf) socializing,  Baja California (Mexico), Balaenoptera musculus Add To Light Table Rissos dolphin showing fresh scarring from social interactions with other Rissos dolphins.  Note distinguishing and highly variable skin and dorsal fin patterns, characteristic of this species. White scarring, likely caused by other Risso dolphins teeth, accumulates during the dolphins life so that adult Rissos dolphins are almost entirely white.
