Research on cetacean social behavior is in transition from descriptive natural history to quantitative analyses.

While grouping individuals by age was useful to determine general trends, the sample size for each age class was small, which may have allowed individual differences Cited by: 1.

To be more specific, the social, life-history and cognitive features of bottlenose dolphins show remarkable convergence with primates and other large brained mammals, offering a powerful method for examining selection pressures that favored cognitive evolution, tool-use, elaborate social network structure, extensive maternal care, behavioral plasticity and prolonged development in distantly.

There appears to be a dominant dolphin that leads the pod. Dominance is established among males in a series of behaviors such as tail slapping.

Because of their exposure in marine parks, movies, and television as well as their presence in tropical and warm-temperature waters around the world, bottlenose dolphins are among the most familiar of marine mammals.

Since they are relatively easy to obtain and they thrive in captivity, these dolphins have been used in a great variety of s: 1. The bottlenose dolphins belong to the genus Tursiops, and the family Delphinidae.
