Photographer's Note

The Amazon river dolphin is a mammal of the order Cetacea, native of the Amazon and of the coast of the Atlantic and the Pacific, similar to the sea dolphin. The river dolphins are one of the few mammals of this order that live exclusively in fresh water environments, being considered by some zoologists as the most primitive species of dolphins.

This river dolphin was photographed from a floating house in the Negro River, very close to the city of Manaus. The best way of reaching the place is by hiring a boat tour directly in the harbor of the city.
