Dolphins are one of the most human friendly animals. These are marine mammals and are warm blooded animals. There are more or less forty species of dolphin varying in sizes from 1.2 meters to 9.5 meters. Their weight ranges from 90 pounds to 10 tons, quite huge. A group of dolphins is called a ‘school’ or a ‘pod’. Male dolphins are called ‘bulls’ and the females are called ‘cows’. Young dolphins are called ‘calves’. The main food of dolphins is fish and squid but the fish like false killer whale and the orca feed on other marine mammals as well. Dolphins like Orcas hunt other whale species too which are larger than themselves. Dolphins can produce a broad range of sounds using nasal airsacs located just below their blowhole.
Dolphins have a habit of leaping above the surface of water. This activity is being done for various reasons. When travelling within the water, jumping can save the dolphin energy as there is less friction as compared to water while they are in the air. This type of travel is known as porpoising.
The dolphins are beautiful kind of fish and today I have collected the best photographs of dolphins. I hope you like them.
