Dorsal fin of a short-finned pilot whale (Globicephala macrorhynchus). Attached to this dorsal fin are several crustacean parasites. They are Xenobalanus globicipitis, a pseudo-stalked barnacle. The short-finned pilot whale, which is found throughout the world's temperate and tropical waters, is actually a large dolphin. Photographed in the Atlantic Ocean, south-west of Tenerife, the Canary Islands.
