Their rostrums are so long that sometimes they bend up and back when they bring them out of the water to have a look-see. These are the "Hawaiian spinner dolphins", we don't get the forward canted dorsal fins here, those are indicitive of the Eastern Tropical Pacific spinners. Those are the ones that are involved in the dolphin/tuna industry :( Tori

Look at those long beaks...hence the name longirostris. So you get the ones with the weird almost forward-pointing dorsal fins sometimes?
