Dolphins are Marine animals and are related to whales and porpoises! There are 40 species of this animal! Dolphins eat mainly of squid and fish! Dolphins are carnivores that live in shallower waters! These doplhins were evolved about 10 million years ago! Dolphins are the most friendliest, most playful, and the most intelligent animals there are around! (In the water!) They come from a family of Delphinidae and Platanistoidea! They come from a kingdom called Animalia! Most of the enemies to dolphins are sharks! The Bull shark, the Tiger shark, the Dusky shark, and the Great White shark! Dolphins can be killed by Humans too! Like, dolphins are killed by drive hunts, pollution, and especially collisions with boats! The Propellers are the most dangerous! Most people are entertained by dolphins like in the water shows, zoos, OH! and don't forget SEA WORLD!!!! Most people love riding on them and dolphins have great relationships with them! Dolphins sometimes harass seabirds and sea turtles!!!! Dolphins love riding waves! They surf coastal swells, and bow waves of the boats! At times, they want to interact with other human swimmers! Dolphins sleep with their eyes closed sometimes,and don't respond to things! Since they can't breathe underwater while they sleep they tail kick or reflex,so the blowhole stays above the water!
