Masses and dimensions are used to model the aerial spinning dynamics of spinner dolphins (*Stenella longirostris*).

Ψ is the angle that the pectoral flippers are canted to the water flow.

*

Dimensions are based on data from average values(Perrin and Gilpatrick, 1994)and scaled photographs of appendages for a related species (*Stenella clymene*; NMNH504408).
