Bottlenose dolphins have a broad distribution that includes most of the tropical, subtropical and temperate parts of the ocean where there are several kinds of habitats.
Dolphins are not frequent victims of any predator in the ocean due to their sociability and intelligence, but killer whales and some large sharks are their main natural threat.
The Common Bottlenose Dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) is the most researched dolphin species in the world. It is common in dolphinariums around the world.
