Dear All,

Happy New Year!

Is anyone aware of (aggressive) behaviour of bottlenose dolphins against conspecifics or other species which can be classified as territorial behaviour.
The only article I found is: Felix, F. (2001) Escorting behaviour: A territorial manifestation in wild bottlenose dolphins? Estud. Oceanol. 20: 67-70.
I would really appreciate any information on this, either published or from anecdotal cases.

Many thanks,
