The oval nucleus, with its well-developed chromatin network, has one to three nucleoli.

Collagen fiber bundles, 30–55 µm thick, run mostly at a flat angle to the skin or parallel to the skin and interlace at more or less right angles to a three-dimensional network (Sokolov, 1982). 2). , 2004). Elastin fibers in most parts of the body are numerous, running along the collagen fiber bundles and independently between the fat cells. 10). The thickness of the subcutaneous fat tissue varies according to the animal’s health status, ontogeny, geography, reproductive state, and feeding success.
The antinclinal vertebra, the first whose spinous process is perpendicular to the body of the vertebra, corresponds to L7–8 in the bottlenose and common dolphin.
