ABSTRACT
The article presents a study that examined the behavior of Globicephala macrorhynchus short-finned pilot whales in the southeastern Arabian Sea. The researchers observed that the short-finned pilot whales frequently crossed in front of their vessel, moved along with the vessel and rolled sideways. They also found scars on the bodies of four short-finned pilot whales.
