Facts about Dolphins

Howdy ya’ll!! 

May your day be rainbowtastic!

Joey thinks dolphins are cool! Joey wants me to tell you some cool facts about dolphins. Are you ready to learn about dolphins? Did you know that there are over 35 species of dolphins? Dolphins are mammals. They are warm blooded. They are a marine animal and they live in the water. They do not breathe with gills like fish do. They breathe with their lungs.

 

Have you ever seen a dolphin?

 

Facts about dolphins:

1. Dolphins are carnivores. They eat fish, jellyfish, squid and other aquatic creatures.

2. Orcas are considered dolphins. Orcas are the largest species in the dolphin family. They can grow to be about 30 feet long.

3. Here is a list of some of the different types of dolphins in alphabetical order:

  • · Amazon river
  • · Atlantic humpbacked
  • · Baiji
  • · Common bottlenose
  • · False killer whale
  • · Indo-Pacific humpbacked
  • · Orca
  • · Risso's
  • · Spinner
  • · Striped

4. Dolphins sleep near the surface of the water so they can get air when they need it. Dolphins usually sleep during the night but only for a few hours at a time. One side of the dolphin’s brain is always awake even when they are asleep. The left side of their brain sleeps while the right side is awake and vice versa. This makes it easier for them to be able to come to the surface of the water to get air when needed.

5. Dolphins can swim up to 37 miles per hour (MPH) depending on the type of dolphin. The Orca whale/dolphin can swim up to 35 miles per hour. The Bottlenose dolphin can swim over 18 miles per hour.

6. Dolphins have very large brains and are very intelligent. You and your parents/caretakers can experience your very own dolphin encounter and learn a lot about them by visiting The Dolphin Research Center located in Grassy Key, Florida.

7. Dolphins are very social. They swim together in groups. A group of dolphins are called a pod.
