Second in the Ogasawara series is a pair of Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops aduncus). The dolphins each measure approximately 7cm in length (1:50 scale). There appears to be a misprint on the label on the base which reads Tursiops truncatus instead of Tursiops aduncus even though the official announcement and the mini info-sheet that comes with the set says the latter.

I guess they simply wrote "Tursiops truncatus" because T. aduncus has so long been lumped together with it. But the spots on the belly do suggest T. aduncus, indeed. :)
