Discover more about marine mammals:
Marine mammals represent a family of vertebrate animals that is very diverse in terms of shape, structure and adaptation. This includes cetaceans (whales, dolphins and porpoises), sirenia (manatees) and certain carnivores such as pinnipeds (seals and sea lions, among others), polar bears and sea otters.
At the Interactive Aquarium Cancun you can watch and interact with two marine mammal species:
The bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus)
The bottlenose dolphin is just one of 37 species of dolphins (Delphinidae family). It is found in temperate and tropical waters around the world and lives in coastal and open water ecosystems, as well as in estuaries and, occasionally, in rivers.
Sea lion (Otaria flavescens)
They are mammals with certain adaptations that allow them to come ashore to procreate. They are carnivorous and move around using their forelimbs, unlike seals.
