Spinner dolphins are extremely acrobatic and they can spin along their longitudinal axis. They have a longer rostrum, [that is the beak, or nose], than other species of dolphin. This sculpture had an extraordinary cantilever that seems to defy gravity, much as the Spinner dolphin will display, but this action is thought to be both territorial and to shake off the numerous fish that attach themselves the sensitive skin of all Cetaceans.
