Where does she live
Cosmopolitan species, it is present in all temperate and tropical oceans and seas of the world. In the Mediterranean area it is the most common cetacean species in the continental shelf, with a discontinuous and fragmented distribution in small units. Key areas for the distribution of this species are the Alboran Sea, the Balearics, the Spanish coast, the Adriatic, the stretch of sea between Tunisia, the Pelagie and Malta, the Aegean, the coastal areas of Turkey and the Algeria and, probably, the Middle Eastern portion of the Mediterranean. Furthermore, the coastal areas of north-eastern Sardinia and southern Corsica are also of considerable importance, particularly as nursery areas. The movements of bottlenose dolphins living offshore are little studied, but they seem to be related to the diet which includes migratory species of fish and squid. In some areas of northern Europe, such as Scotland, there are marked seasonal fluctuations in the number of people living in residential areas. In the Mediterranean area, only the coastal ecotype is present, although genetic studies show that the Mediterranean bottlenose dolphin population is closer to the pelagic ecotype that lives in the Atlantic Ocean. Surely the distribution of prey species and the wide distribution of this species mean that it can frequent both habitats, even if it is more closely linked to coastal environments.
