The Bredanensis or rough-toothed is a species of dolphin that can be found in deep warm and tropical waters around the world.
The rough-toothed dolphin or Bredanensis is a relatively large species, with adults ranging from 6.9 to 9.3 ft. in length, and weighing between 198 and 342 lb. Males are larger than females.
Its most visible characteristic feature is its conical head and slender nose; other dolphins either have a shorter snout or a more visibly bulging melon on the forehead.
The teeth are also distinctive, having a roughened surface formed by numerous narrow irregular ridges. Bredanensis have been reported to have between nineteen and twenty-eight teeth in each quarter of the jaw.
Bredanensis or Rough-toothed dolphins are typically social animals, although solitary individuals are also sighted. An average group has between ten and twenty members, but they can vary from as few as two to as many as ninety.
Such groups are thought to be temporary assemblages, composed of smaller, more permanent groups of two to eight closely related individuals that occasionally join together with others.
They have also been reported to school together with other species of dolphin, and with pilot whales, false killer whales, and humpback whales.
The stomach contents of stranded Bredanensis or Rough-toothed dolphins have included such fish such as silversides, sauries, houndfish, smelts, cutlassfish, and various squid and octopuses.
Bredanensis or Rough-toothed dolphins have been reported to engage in intentional self-intoxication with puffer fish toxins.
