Product details Bottlenose dolphin

Bottlenose dolphin

William Bell

Plate 18 for the paper "Observations on the structure and oeconomy of whales", by John Hunter, Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society vol. 77 part 1 1787 pp.371-450. Two views of an animal described by Hunter as a bottle-nose whale or Delphinus delphis [the latter is the present name of the short-beaked common dolphin]. The main figure shows the animal's right side, with a water spout indicating the position of the blowhole; a detail of the head and one fin seen from above shows the blowhole itself. The specimen, apparently a juvenile, was caught in the sea off Berkeley in Gloucestershire [presumably in the Severn Estuary].

Original: ink on paper. 1787
