This week we have the otic capsule of the Common Dolphin Delphinus delphis. The otic capsule is the section of the skull that surrounds the inner ear. This is part of the Dolphin’s famous echolocation system with which the dolphin can “see” with sound. This system acts very much like active sonar on submarines.
New!—Common Dolphin (otic capsule)
