Irrawaddy dolphin

The Irrawaddy dolphin has also the scientific name of Orcaella Brevirostris. This dolphin specie feeds mainly on fishes. Despite the specific areas where its natural habitat is located, this marine mammal does not belong on the endangered dolphins list.


The Irrawaddy dolphin can also be observed, first hand, during a dolphin watching tour in its natural settings which are the tropical waters as well as both the Indian and Pacific Oceans.

The size of the Irrawaddy dolphin ranges between small and medium. Its length varies between 2 to 2.5 meters long. Its weight can reach from 90 up to 150 kg.
