  • Nearly 40 species of dolphins swim the water of the world. Most live in shallow areas of tropical and temperate oceans, and five species live in rivers. Dolphins are carnivores. Fish, squid, and crustaceans are included in their prey. A 260 pound dolphin eats about 33 pounds of fish a day. Known for their playful behavior dolphins are highly intelligent. They're as smart as apes, and the evolution of their larger brains is surprisingly similar to humans    Kaitlyn Salada
  • Dolphins are part of the family of whales that includes orcas and pilot whales. Killer whales are actually dolphins. Dolphins are very social, living in groups that hunt and even play together. Large pods of dolphins can have 1,000 members or more. Depending on the species, gestation takes 9 to 17 months. After birth dolphins are surprisingly maternal. They have been observed nestling and cuddling their young.      Kailea Hausman
  • A dolphin calf nurses for up to 2 years. Calves stay with the mothers anywhere from 3 to 8 years. Dolphins have acute eyesight both in and out of the water. They near frequencies 10 times the upper limit of adults humans. Their sense of touch is well developed, but they have no sense of smell.Dolphins have few natural enemies. Humans are their main threat. Pollution, fishing, and hunting mean some dolphin species have an uncertian future. In 2006, the Yangtze River dolphin was named functionally extinct.          Emily Chavarria      
  • Because dolphins are mammals, they need to come to the surface of the water to breathe. Unlike land mammals that breathe and eat through their mouths, dolphins have seperate holes for each task. Dolphins eat through their mouths and breathe through their blowholes. This prevents the dolphins from sucking up water into the lungs when hunting, reducing the risk of drowning. All the types of dolphins are killer whale, common bottle-nose dolphins, amazon river dolphin, indo-pacific humpback dolphin, short finned pilot whale, striped dolphin, baiji dolphin, short-beaked common dolphin, spinner dolphin, pacific white sided dolphin, Risso's dolphin, irrawaddy dolphin, pantropical spotted dolphin, false killer dolphin, Hector's commerson's dolphin, dusky dolphin, tucuxi dolphin, white-beaked dolphin, long-finned pilot whale, indus river dolphin, rough-toothed dolphin, chilean dolphin, Australian snubfin dolphin, indo-pacific bottlenose dolphin, Atlantic spotted dolphin, hourglass dolphin, la plata dolphin, melon-headed whale, Atlantic white sided dolphin, and alot more that wont fit.              Jasmine Estrella
