Common Dolphin Pods
Pod of Common Dolphins in Monterey Bay – Kalina

Common Dolphins are a very social species and live in large pods with populations ranging from several hundred to several thousand members. Dolphins communicate in their pods primarily through whistling sounds. Each dolphin in a pod has its own distinct “signature” whistle, that functions as a name, or call for the dolphin. Other dolphins may imitate a dolphin’s signature whistle in order to call to them.
