The Dainty Dolphins
Peacefully playing in the pods underwater lives different species of Dolphins. Did you know that there are more than 40 different species of dolphins that zoologists recognise, and each dolphin has their own whistle which identifies each ones uniqueness when they want to communicate. That means that if you were scuba diving you would hear some bizarre noises.
Many people think that dolphins just lay around every day with nothing to do, just relaxing on coral and seaweed. But they have a lot more than you think they need to do. Dolphins like to swim really fast and usually swim between 20-25 miles per hour each and every day. Dolphins usually live up to 50 years, so they would swim 365,000 miles in their whole life span. When they are swimming they hear each other with their lower jaw bone, which conducts sound to their middle ear.
Dolphins like to eat a lot of food daily. Dolphins are carnivores which means that they eat meat. Dolphins generally eat 10-25 kgs of fish a day, that's not even as much as you would eat in a week. Dolphins are not always in captivity, which means they need to find their own food.They usually find their food by using their unique noise. The noise will attract fishes and when the fishes are not looking, the dolphin will use its tactic and eat the fish whole.
Dolphins are known for playing around like cheerful animals jumping up and down in the crystal clear water, but have you ever wondered what happens to their body when they are in water all the time. When your in water you usually get shrimps on your finger, but they have a special type of skin which is really sleek and also has a really rubbery texture and it also is 10-20 times thicker than an average mammals skin. Some people also use Dolphin skin as leather for handbags or jackets, and they also think that we should be more careful before buying one of the items.
