The Pantropical spotted dolphin has a slender body, with a narrow beak and whitish lips.
There is a crease between the beak and the melon, and a dark stripe from the beak to the flipper.
They grow from 5.2-8.5 ft (1.6-2.6m) with weights of 265 lb. They are heavily spotted on the sides with a gray cape on the dorsal side and a light underside.
The Pantropical spotted dolphin was one of the species caught most by tuna fisherman in the past.
