WHAT ARE DOLPHINS?

Unlike fish, Dolphins are mammals and use lungs to breath instead of gills. Like other mammals they give birth as opposed to laying eggs but unlike other mammels they do not have hair on their bodies. They don't have body hair because they need to swim as fast as they can to catch fish, their main source of food. They also need to be able to evade their predetors, like the evil sharks found in the ocean. Dolphins also eat squid.



The name Dolphin refers to the species that have a beaklike snout and slender, streamlined body, which has developed over millions of years through evolution to enable them to swim at high speeds. Unlike our skin, the Dolphins' skin made of live cells, unlike our dead skin and because of this they have no protection from bumps or bruises.

Dolphins do not have good eyes and need their echolocation to navigate, find food and communicate. Echolocation is a technique that dolphins use to 'see' what is ahead of them by the use of sounds. These sounds are released at a rate of about 300 sounds a second. Their squeals, that are used by dolphins are for communication and as a way of indicating their emotional states. Their brains are larger then ours.

Dolphins tend to live for about twenty years, but some have been known to live for about forty years When dolphins sleep, they sleep in a semi-alert state by resting one side of their brain at a time If need be, dolphins can hold their breath for 5-8 minutes at a time Dolphins can dive as deep as 200m (that's 650ft)

A dolphin sheds its outer layer of skin every two hours Dolphins will help sick or injured dolphins as much as they can Dolphins work as a team if danger is near by. Every dolphin has its own signature whistle to distinguish itself from its companions, it's like us using names.
