The Melon-Headed Whale is actually a dolphin and it’s commonly seen in the company of other species in the wild.
The Melon-Headed Whale is actually a dolphin belonging to the oceanic dolphin family; the Delphinidae. Along with other close species like the false killer whale, the pygmy killer whale, and the pilot whale, it’s also referred to as “blackfish.”
These creatures prefer to swim in very deep waters so they are rarely seen by humans.
The melon-headed whale has a somewhat small and slim, torpedo-shaped body. With a rounded cone-like head hence the name “melon-headed.” Their bodies are uniformly light gray
