Remora on a dolphin. Close-up of a remora (family Echeneidae) on a common dolphin (Delphinus delphis). Remoras are fish that use a sucker-like attachment to cling to a host animal, usually for transport reasons and to feed on the host's leftover food and detritus. The common dolphin is found throughout the world in temperate and warm seas. Photographed in the Gulf of California, Mexico.
