Northern right whale dolphins have an unusually slender body shape, and they do not have a dorsal fin or ridge. They have small, curved flippers, and small flukes. They are mostly black, but they have a well defined white band on their belly. Males and females have the same body shape and color pattern, the only sexually dimorphism being that males can attain greater length (up to 3 meters) and weight than females.
Range mass: 90 to 113 kg.
