If you know me, you know I am not a “tell-all”---but I do want to introduce you to the “who’s who” of Hilton Head.
Hilton Head’s Friendliest Resident: The Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphin.  These guys are intelligent, charming and playful. Easily identified by their short, stubby beak and gray upper body (it’s pale or pink underneath), they are typically 6 – 12 feet long and weight anywhere from 300 – 1400 pounds. Their curved mouths give the appearance of a permanent smile---but don’t get too close, they have 80 – 100 cone-shaped teeth which they use to trap their prey and then swallow it whole!
