Bottlenose Dolphins Reproduction
Bottlenose dolphins are gray in color which varies from dark gray on top near the dorsal fin to light gray whitish on the underside. This hue makes them difficult to see from above and below. Adult bottlenose dolphins are between 2 and 4 meters long and weigh from 150 to 650 kilograms.
From the documentation, courtship and copulation behavior is often characterized by the appearance of an open mouth, posture s, erratic swimming patterns, and vocalizations. These interactions are important in developing social bonds between individuals, reducing stress, dealing with conflict, functioning as a form of play, and establishing dominance, regardless of age class or gender. Because of the importance of these interactions, sexual behavior is often carried out outside the context of reproduction. Well it turns out, for a dolphin, maturity is important, this is because the maturity age of each dolphin varies depending on the region and the existing population. Sexual maturity is not measured by age but by size. A female usually reaches sexual maturity when she has reached 85 – 95% of her average adult body length. It ranges from 7 – 12 years, depending on the population.
Given that dolphins are mammals, they will go through a period of pregnancy. The bottlenose dolphin’s gestation period is about 12 months, and dolphin calves are usually born tail first. Labor can last from 30 minutes to 3 hours. At birth, bottlenose dolphin calves are about 3-4 feet long and 30-40 pounds in weight. They are born with a flat fin on the back, and a curved tail. The dorsal fin usually stands upright about 24-48 hours after birth, although it may wobble over the years.
