The Coolest-Looking Dolphin in the World

I've seen hundreds and hundreds of dolphins, mostly on two lucky trips out into the Monterey Bay. They were primarily common and bottlenose dolphins, the standard representatives of Delphic civilization in my mind. While beautiful, those animals look nothing like the southern right whale dolphin, which looks like an orca whale mixed with an Infinity and a yinyang. The Blue Planet Society tweeted this photograph of one taken by Pablo Caceres off the coast of Valparaiso, Chile. This is one glorious-looking animal.
