In Episode 2 of the Wild West Cork, we take a look at the short-beaked common dolphin. A species of the common dolphin, the sort-beaked dolphin is energetic and boisterous animal that can be seen often breaking the water’s surface.

The Wild West Cork show focuses on the cultural region of Country Cork in Ireland, exploring the wildlife. Created by Cojo Films, the series tries to show a different species in every episode.

As mentioned, the second episode focuses on the she short-beaked common dolphin. This is the most common dolphin, more than any other dolphin species. There are many animals of this species in the Atlantic and Pacific Ocean, as well as in the Caribbean and Mediterranean Sea.

The common dolphin was separated in two categories in 1994. One was short-beak, and the second was long-beak variety. In addition, there are two sub-species of the short-beak common dolphin, the black sea, and the short beak common dolphin.

A medium-sized dolphin, the short-beak is smaller than the widely known bottlenose dolphin. Adults can get up to five to eight feet in length and between 220 and 299 pounds in weight. Males are longer and heavier.

In the Mediterranean, the population of short-beaked common dolphin is listed on Appendix I, while in the North Sea, Baltic Sea, and Black Sea, the dolphin is listed as Appendix II.
