Quote from: brontodocus on June 13, 2013, 11:31:03 AMGreat photos, especially the "underwater shot"! However, this is officially a Short-finned Pilot Whale, Globicephala macrorhynchus (it was even on the bottlecap but I just have the figure without bottlecap, like in your photos). And while it's always necessary to be cautious with the species identification by a manufacturer - especially in this case where two sister species are hard to tell apart - the relative shortness of the flippers and short snout with wide melon do suggest this is G. macrorhynchus instead of G. melas. The faint diagonal stripe from the eye to the dorsal fin also seems to be more common in G. macrorhynchus, too.
