Amazing Common Bottlenose Dolphin (Tursiops truncatus, delfin skakavy) from ZOO / dolphinarium Nuremberg, Germany :D




I am very proud of this photo, because it is pretty difficult to take a photo of dolphins in Nürnberg :giggle: I played with the dolphins and it was simply awesome :heart:

For *Lunchi :hug:

Thank you for your comments and faves :hug:

INFO ABOUT THE ANIMAL:

Name: Common Bottlenose Dolphin (Tursiops truncatus)
Location: warm and temperate tropical oceans worldwide
Size: 2 - 4 metres long weight: 150 – 650 kg
Diet: fish, cephalopod, crustacean

Interesting facts: dolphin is a mammal, not a fish! Baby dolphins always drink mother milk | dolphins have bigger brains, than humans | dolphins usually live in groups | dolphin is one of few animals, who kill not only for food! Male dolphins are also known to rape the females. Dolphins are not that cute and nice animals, as many people think. They have no problems to kill a shark and they sometime annoy swimmers in the sea | dolphins use echolocation to search for prey | dolphins are time to time found washed ashore, too often dying – nobody knows, why this happens.
Relationship with humans: people keep dolphins in aquariums and dolphinarius, where the animals perform special tricks – dolphins very easily learns those tricks | there are scientific researches about dolphins, which usually prove their high inteligence | dolphins appear in many human legends | some dolphins help people to hunt fish throught whole generations | US army use dolphins, teaching them to find mines and so on... | in some parts of the world, wild dolphins come from their own will to interact with people

The only time they should be in a tank is if they're getting treated medically back to health but then released right away.

Ugh dolphins should NOT be in tanks. There smiling faces are very deceiving.. Poor creatures need miles and miles of free space.

another person who thinks dolphins love to swim miles and miles a day. They do that, because they fight for life as they hunt for food.

dolphins are perfectly fine in good dolphinariums. But of course, anti-dolphinarium propaganda brainwashed many people.

I read up on it some more and ok your right there isn't much evidence that dolphins get depressed in tanks but whales are known to jump out or beat their poor heads on walls. I call that depression.

They do get depressed. Killer whales/Orca whales (which belong to the dolphin family) have been known to get so depressed in captivity they kill themselves. Yes, they actually commit suicide, look up Hugo the whale. No animal like this should be in captivity, the only time they should be in captivity is if they are unable to be released into the wild or if they are getting treated for an injury or illness and will later be released.

By supporting whales and dolphins in captivity (by going places that have them like Seaworld etc.) you are supporting the barbaric dolphin hunts in Taiji and many other countries.
