Dolphin muscle anatomy

Does anyone around here know of a source for muscle group data, preferably one thats not imposible to get or understand, for bottlenose dolphins?

I'm doing a bit of a search for a friend that is making an art tutorial, so sources that include plate diagrams are prefered.

Re: Dolphin muscle anatomy

There are these kids books called Zoobooks, and they have a picture of the animal they're talking about, it's muscle structure (side view), and then the skeletal structure. I'm not sure where you can pick up a copy - I see them at my aquarium every so often. I know they have a dolphin one. It'll probably show a bottlenose inside.

The Sam Ridgway book Mammals Of the Sea has a good color plate showing the anatomy. I can scan it for you if you want.

My Zoobooks are about um... 13 years old. =P

I can't find the whale one anywhere though, which bothers me. It had some cool orca photos in it. =\
