Microsoft Rewards Bing Homepage Quiz: What kind of cetaceans are leading the hunt?
A Killer whale
B Common dolphin
C Pilot whale
With a global population of about six million, there are more common dolphins in the world than any other type of cetacean. These dolphins inhabit most of the temperate seas in both hemispheres. Although once classified into two species, short-beaked and long-beaked, the distinction is no longer considered meaningful.
Despite their name, common dolphins are not the classic archetype of dolphin many of us know from aquarium shows and popular culture. The famous TV dolphin, Flipper, was a bottlenose dolphin.
The correct answer to this quiz is Common dolphin.
