Information about the Risso's Dolphin:
The Risso's Dolphin is a widespread cetacean found in many of the world's oceans. They're found worldwide in temperate and tropical waters, usually in deep waters rather, but often close to land. As well as the tropical parts of the Indian, Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, they are also found in the Persian Gulf and Mediterranean and Red Seas, but not the Black Sea. They range as far north as the Gulf of Alaska and southern Greenland and as far south as Tierra del Fuego. Their preferred environment is just off the continental shelf on steep banks, with water depths varying from 400–1,000 m (1,300–3,300 ft) and water temperatures at least 10°C (50°F) and preferably 15-20°C (59-68°F). It is the only member of the genus Grampus. It's named after Antoine Risso, whose description formed the basis of the first public description of the animal, by Georges Cuvier, in 1812.
