Feeding: Although it is mostly teutofago, it has a set of strong teeth.
Social behaviour: It forms numerous groups, usually composed by adult females with their babies; it seems that adult males move themselves from a of female group to another. The big cohesion among groups should explain the massive beach landings which sometimes happen to these species in some areas of the world.
Vital cycle: The average life is around 40-50 years. The females get to the sexual maturity around 7 years old while the males around 15-20 years. The gestation lasts approximately 15 months.
Identification in sea: It is identified for the out-water profile, in which the “globoso” head is easily visible. Other distinctive symbols are shape of the dorsal fin and coloration. It is mainly scattered in the western portion of the Mediterranean Sea. Its frequency of sight is however quite low
