Costero

The costero (Sotalia guianensis) is found in the coastal waters to the north and east of South America, and east of Central America. The common name "costero" has been suggested by Caballero and colleagues due to the species' affinity for coastal habitats. The costero is a member of the oceanic dolphin family (Delphinidae). Physically, it resembles the bottlenose dolphin. However, this species is sufficiently different from the bottlenose dolphin that it is given its own genus, Sotalia. It is also known as the Guyana dolphin.
