Holas

¿Alguien sabe como se le llama a un grupo de delfines?
Cardumen es lo normal para peces, pero como los delfines no lo son, como que suena raro.
Me inclino por manada, pero me gustaría saber que opinan...
Yo siempre reclamo que en japonés tienen una palabra específica para cada cosa, pero en este caso me salió al revés.
Tenemos jaurías, bandadas, parvadas...
¿No habrá por ahí un término genérico que se me escape? (¿grupo?)

Gracias...

Manada de delfines Jul 23, 2006

Hola, de acuerdo con la Secretaría de Pesca mexicana (SAGARPA) los delfines andan en manadas.

Una búsqueda en Google da muchos resultados donde se usa el término, por ejemplo:

www.cetaceos.com/articulo-varamiento-bretana.htm

Saludos.

Pod Jul 23, 2006

I don't recall hearing the term before but there is strong Google evidence for "pod" in English.

Also "herd", "school", "team"

"Vaina" does seem to be used in Spanish:
