Risso's dolphin - Grampus griseus
names for animals
Image by greenmarlin
Risso's dolphin (Grampus griseus) is the only species of dolphin in the genus Grampus.TaxonomyRisso's dolphin is named after Antoine Risso, whose description formed the basis of the first public description of the animal, by Georges Cuvier, in 1812. Another common name for the Risso's dolphin is grampus (also the species' genus), although this common name was more often used for the orca. The etymology of the word grampus is unclear. It may be an agglomeration of the Latin grandis piscis or French grand poisson both meaning big fish. The specific epithet griseus refers to the mottled (almost scarred) grey colour of its body.
